I thought I'd try making this in a pie plate (I have a pretty one I'd just washed) and it worked great. I used a 1-pound package of frozen peach slices, thawed, but they didn't quite cover the bottom of the pie plate so I put a few handfuls of blackberries and raspberries in the middle. That gave it some nice contrasting color too. I used butter instead of margarine and almond extract instead of vanilla, as others suggested. I also added a handful of sliced almonds, chopped into small pieces, to the cinnamon/sugar topping. Maybe since I used a ceramic pie plate, the kuchen was done in only 25 minutes. It's delicious and not too sweet, PERFECT with coffee or hot tea. It would make a good brunch recipe or a good dessert after a large meal since it's so light and not too filling. I believe you could use just about any fruit with good results. This recipe is a definite keeper!
