Might be Pflaumenkuchen (plum tart).

With the lattice on top etc., wouldn't it be more a pflaumentarte instead of a kuche?

thanks for the feedback.  i believe the recipe for the pflaumenkuchen did call for the lattice though

I, too, think it looks more like a tart than a Kuchen, which is usually made with a yeast or baking powder dough as a base. It would be impossible to crimp that kind of dough. In many parts of Germany, Pflaumen are called Zwetschgen, which might help with recipe searches.
