Granny’s plum cake

It is still plum season and I bought another basket full of them last weekend. Today I made a plum cake with a recipe by my granny (no idea where she got it from…).
You mix 125g curd cheese (in Swiss-German Quark), 4 tablespoons oil (a neutral tasting oil, I used sunflower), 4 tablespoons milk, 80g sugar, 200g flour and 2 teaspoons of baking powder. You should end up with a soft bread like dough.

Cover the bottom of a round cake tin (26cm) with the dough. In a bowl
mix 125g curd cheese, 1 egg and a packet of vanilla sugar. Spread the mix over the dough and then arrange the split and pitted plums on top.

After about 40 minutes at 180C the plum cake is ready. You can either serve it warm or completely cooled down. Both ways it tastes delicious!
