Fruit Platz

We  went to St Jacobs in the Summer ,  stop by at  a Bakery, and order some Rhubarb fruit Platz, this bakery belong to a Mennonite owner, the cake tasted really good.
I found this recipe similar to it from Mennonite girl . I added Rhubarb pie filling, yummy.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp shortening
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp cream

  1. Mix together dry ingredients for pastry.
  2. With pastry blender, blend in shortening, then stir in combined egg and cream. Stir well until it holds together.
  3. Pat and stretch into 9X13 or 9X9 inch greased pan. Light colored pan - preferred.
  4. Cover with desired fruit. Sliced apricots, peaches, apples, blueberries, cherry pie filling or chopped rhubarb - are some good options.
  5. Combine dry ingredients for crumb mixture. Blend in butter and cream, using pastry blender or fingers until desired crumb consistency. Cover fruit.
  6. Bake in the top third of oven at 350 F until golden, for 40 - 45 minutes.
