Plum Crumb Cake

I'm always searching for ways to use up plums this time of year, so I modified my favorite applesauce cake recipe to use pureed plums.  The resulting cake is not too sweet, and works just as well for breakfast as it does for dessert.

The Ingredients:
3 c flour
1 c sugar
2 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
1 t salt
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1 1/2 c pitted, pureed plums (about 12 small plums)
1 c water
2/3 c oil
2 t vanilla
1 c raisins
6 chopped, pitted plums

crumb topping:
2/3 c brown sugar
2/3 c rolled oats
2 T margarine, melted
2 T flour
1 T cinnamon

The Process:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and cloves.
  3. Stir in plum puree, water, oil, and vanilla until well-combined.
  4. Fold in raisins and chopped plums, and pour into a 9x13 pan.
  5. Mix together all crumb topping ingredients with a fork until crumbly.  Sprinkle topping over cake.
  6. Bake until cooked through, about 45-50 minutes.
