Fruit Platz - Mom's Recipe

Platz are a thin Mennonite coffee cake, topped with fruit and a crumble topping. You can vary the fruit however you wish. Try using berries, rhubarb, plums, peaches, pitted fresh cherries, or even a mixture to make up your own combination. The result can be a very moist cake so you may need to cook it a bit longer than stated. It’s best eaten the day it’s made and doesn’t freeze well. It's also a fantastic way to use up all that rhubarb growing in your garden.
