Recipe of the day: plum pie! | Culinary

Needed for a cake:

• 150 gr butter

• 150 g cane sugar

• 16 plums

• 3 large eggs

• 75 gr flour

• 1 ½ large teaspoons of baking powder

• 100 gr ground almonds

• 50 gr finely chopped walnuts


This is how you make a delicious plum cake. Set the oven at 180 ° C. Then beat butter and sugar until it becomes fluffy and yellow in color. This is much easier with the machine than by hand.

Halve the plums, remove the seeds.

Beat the eggs and stir a little at a time into the butter mass.

Sift the flour and baking powder together over the butter mixture and toss together in large strokes. This is also called folding. Also fold in the almonds. And then the walnuts.

Gently spoon the mixture into a buttered pie pan. Place the plums on top. They sink into the dough. That should.

Bake for 45 minutes. Yep, poke it with the knitting needle, if the needle comes out dry, everything is fine.

Leave to cool and serve with whipped cream to which you have added a small wedge of plum eau de vie in addition to sugar. (From: Kitchen diary, Nigel Slater)
