Pflaumem Kochen (German cake)

  This is an old family recipe past down on my dad's side. MY mom taught me how to make this. Ive used different fruits over the years. I just made it for hubby using raspberries. ( used 2 containers). I also double the Crumbs. You can use a smaller pan or a round pan if you want a thicker crust.
