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.
