Ingredients

  • 2 eggs, well beaten
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1 cup cooked wild plums, mashed, pits removed (may substitute fresh cooked or canned plums)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or hazelnuts
  • Powdered sugar to sift over baked plum bars (we used 1/2 cup)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a 13x9-inch baking dish or pan.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, cream well together the beaten eggs with the brown sugar, buttermilk and vanilla. Add the flour, salt, and allspice, beating well together, then stir in the cooked plums and chopped pecans. Pour this batter into the prepared baking dish; spread evenly. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until golden.
  3. Remove and cool completely on wire rack. Cut into about 30 bars and dust well with fine sifted powdered sugar, if desired.
