Plum Custard Kuchen Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 3)
Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
My friends mother made a plum kuchen when we were kids and nothing can beat her recipe but this comes close enough to earn my 5 stars! As far as the custard part of it...it's not supposed to have alot of custard which would, in my opinion make it way to rich. It is supposed to be a more simple, light dessert. That's the way she says they made it when she grew up in switzerland.

I tried using both plums and banana for the fruit filling. i liked the banana much better. Also, I added almonds on top of the fruit and topped it with fresh whipped cream flavored with almond extract. it was a great dessert.

I couldn't find fresh plums in the middle of winter, so used canned instead and added the plums with custard at the end. It looked kind of ugly, but tasted good. I will try again with fresh plums when they are in season.

My friends mother made something similar when we were kids. Nothing will ever beat her original recipe which she made with more of a pie or tart crust but this comes pretty close so I have to give it a 5 stars.

I used Pluot Plums on the top. If your plums are getting too ripe - make this dessert. I used to make this dessert with a crumb topping - but this custard version is surprisingly good. I served it warm with vanilla ice cream. We all thought that it reminded us of deep dish rubarb pie. I guess it was the sweet and sour taste. mmm...

A delicious kuchen if you prefer custard desserts, I thought it was better than the gourmet recipes.
