Plum cake

Picture and recipe from here

Peter brought some lovely plums today so I thought they would look lovely in a cake, so after a small search I found this plum cake.


600 g plums
175 g curd cheese (I had mascarpone so I used it!)
6 tablespoons milk
6 tablespoons oil
150 g sugar
1 package vanilla sugar
1 pinch of salt
300 g flour
1 baking powder
1 egg yolk (the eggwhite I added as well - see below)
4 tablespoons almonds
some butter


Wash the plums and cut the fruit in four pieces. Mix the curd cheese / mascarpone, milk, oil, 50 g sugar, vanilla sugar and salt. Separately mix the flour with the baking powder. Slowly add the flour mix to the curd cheese mass. I also added the egg white.

The mix will be the bottom of the cake, which will be added in a round form (prior to this grease it well). On the bottom put the grounded almonds. Then on top the plums.

Separately mix the egg yolk with the remaining sugar and create a kind of crumble (I put some cinnamon in the mix, since I love the taste). This will be the final layer.

I baked it for 45 minutes at 200 °C. My product looks like this, still sizzling:

Enjoy if you want to try it, we for sure will do so!



Oh, this is not fair, showing me these delicious looking baked plum cakes and not being able to follow through with a taste! It is tantamount to torture!

Looks delicious! I can almost smell it!

Oh that does sound and look so good. I love plums.

You know, that is an easy recipe so I think I could do it! I love any kind of fruit cake.

I hate to admit this, but I hate cooked fruit :(

@Desiree - sorry :-) nevertheless you are always welcome to taste it :)
@Laura - yes, it smelled wonderfully and what was great was the mix on top!
@Barb - me too, plums are great!
@Belle - let me know if you liked it!
@Sarah - neither does my husband, but he tries!

Hi Claudia!

This cake looks incredible. You're quite the baker.


A-ha.... this sort of plum cake. I forgot there is this sort too... Lecker!

@Michelle - yes I'm baking and it shows :)
@Weissdorn - see? so many possibilities :))

I love plums as well Claudia, and your plum cake looks (and smells too, I'm sure!) quite delicious. Wouldn't it be wonderful if I could reach into my laptop and cut me off a slice! Hee Hee! Hope you are enjoying the weekend my friend.

@Diane - I would love to share with you the remaining pieces! Maybe one day :-)

I will have to try that recipe out for sure! I know it would go quickly in this house of many eaters. Four sons, one daughter, husband, myself, four DIL's and three grandkids. It would be crumbs in a sec!

Thanks for the recipe!


@Sush - I can only recommend it, it is very easy and delicious!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
