Almond and Yellow Plum Cake

Here is the never-ending saga of our yellow plum trees. I have been baking almost everyday, aside from freezing most of the harvested yellow plums. Our friends and neighbors have enough, more than enough they say.

Here's the ingredients for the Almond and Yellow Plum Cake:

1000 g yellow plums (I tend to add more fruits because my family loves it)
200 g flour
2 tsp baking powder
175 g sugar (plus set aside 2 tbsp sugar)
1 pack vanilla sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
100 g butter
125 g whipping cream
100 g ground almond
50 g almond flakes
plus powdered sugar to sprinkle


Wash the yellow plums, cut in half and remove the seeds.

Mix flour, baking powder, 75 g sugar, vanilla sugar and salt. Add one egg and butter then knead.

Grease and flour a baking tin and press the dough then use a fork to prick the dough.

Beat the whipping cream until stiff, then mix 100 g sugar, ground almonds and one egg. Add to the dough.

Top with the yellow plums, almond flakes and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

In a preheated oven (200-175 degrees), bake around 45 minutes. 10-15 minutes before the end of the baking time, cover the cake with a folie. Let the cake cool in the baking tin. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
