Viennese Plum Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
I just made this today and it was absolutely perfect - I didn’t have enough plums so added a layer of sliced cooking apple. Thank you so much. !!
This cake is buttery and wonderful! I was worried that the plums would make it all too wet and that the cake wouldn't set up, but it worked out great. I doubled the recipe for a 9X13 pan and increased the baking time by about 10 minutes. I can't wait to try this again with other fruits...I plan to use strawberries next time and omit the cinnamon. This seems like a great base recipe for lots of fruit experimentation!
Very tasty - even the picky eaters loved it. Will have to double the recipe next time though - it was gone in an hour!
This cake was delicious, although the plums that I used were a little tart. I will definitely make it again, but next time I will use blueberries instead of plums
I'm from Germany and this Pflaumenkuchen/ Plum Cake brought back Sunday afternoon Coffee and Cake Family get-together memories. We made it with Almond slivers in the topping, and also used tart cooked Apples, Peaches,Pears, and Cherries when in season. In a quick fix, i have used a Apple or Cherry Pie filling, even a can of drained Peaches, and it came out just as great. Try a scoop of Ice Cream or whipped Cream on top to make it really heavenly.
