Breadcake with Plums

Today’s recipe is perfect if you have stale bread lying about. For some reason I am really bad with buying bread and we always have lots of it left over. Usually we feed it to the swans at out local lake.

Today I used my old bread as one ingredient for my bread plum cake. The recipe is from a Swiss cook book used at schools (“Kochen, Braten, Backen”, Lehrmittelverlag Kanton Zürich, i.e. “Cooking, roasting, baking” by the publishing house for teaching materials of Canton Zurich).
You need 220g old bread that you dice and soak in 2dl hot milk.

In a separate bowl whisk together 50g butter, 80g sugar, the juice and rind of half a lemon, and 3 egg yolks.
Then add about 100g chopped nuts (whatever variety you like). I used almonds because I find they work very well with plums. With the nuts add 500g fruit, plums in my case.

Now add the plum/egg mix to the soggy bread. Then whisk the 3 egg whites until stiff and fold it all together. Pour the dough into a breaded cake tin.

After 45-55 minutes in the oven at 180C the bread cake is ready.
