1 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 cups flour
3 ½ cups sugar
1 cup non fat dry milk
2 tablespoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 ¾ cup water
1 -  #10 can (3 quarts) pitted plums

Pour melted butter or margarine over the bottom of a 12 x 20 x 2 steam table pan.  Sift flour, sugar, dry milk, baking powder and salt together into a mixing bowl.  Add water to flour mixture—stir only until well blended.  Spread batter evenly over melted butter or margarine.  Pour canned plums and juice gently over the batter.  Batter will rise over plums to form a cake layer on top.  Bake at 375 F for about 45 minutes or until browned
