afternoon: coffee and cake!


This week-end, my mother was here. Time to get the kitchen back from holidays!

Of course it was the perfect occasion for baking again. So I got some plums, some curd (Quark), butter and eggs and made this cake. I like the mix of curd and fruit!

I got the recipe from the book “Das Ox-Kochbuch Teil II”, edited by. U. Herzer and J. Hiller. I changed it a little bit, but basically, it’s the recipe I’ve found there.

For a cake of 26 cm diameter put the following things on the grocery list:

275 g flour
125+125 g sugar
125 g butter
50-75 ml neutral tasting oil
2 eggs
500 g curd (Quark)
2 tblsp starch flour
lemon zest
600 g plums

Prepare the baking pan.

Quickly make crumbles of the butter, the flour and 125 g sugar. Season with a pinch of salt and if you with with cinnamom. Use 2/3-3/4 of the crumbles to press them into the baking pan to form a pie shell. Put this art d’oeuvre into the fridge for about 1 hour. Put the remaining crumbles aside.

Preheat the oven (200°C). Using a fork, make some holes into the dough and bake the dough for about 10 minutes (I didn’t do that, it’s not written in the recipe, but next time, I’m gonna do it). Meanwhile, pit and cut the plums.

Then stir together the starch and the eggs (add the eggs slowly and whiks very well to avoid lumps), then add lemon zest, oil, the other 125 g sugar, and curd.

Put this mix into the pre-baked crust. Put the plums on top (cut side up), followed by the remaining crumbs. Bake for about 55 minutes until golden brown!
