  • Yesterday I got plums from my neighbor's garden and used them straight away.
  • Mix the ingredients for the dough with room temperature butter in the food processor to a dough that is difficult to tear. If you use a hand mixer, first beat the butter, sugar, vanilla sugar and eggs until creamy. Mix flour and cornstarch with baking powder and gradually add milk until the dough cracks heavily.
  • Rinse the plums, cut in half, remove the stone and then quarter.
  • Line the bottom of a 26 cm springform pan with baking paper. Grease the inner edges with a little oil. Pour in the batter and spread the plums on top in two layers. Press something into the dough with the heel of your hand.
  • On the middle rail in the oven at 160 ° upper and lower Bake the bottom heat for approx. 75 minutes. Chopstick sample. If nothing sticks, the cake is ready. Let cool and dust with powdered sugar. Good Appetite.
