’Child-friendly’ plum cake

"Child Friendly"  plum cake is so named because the girl in the video bakes in the company of her little niece, not my recipe, but I wanted to share, the recipe as well as the video:) Its a traditional Jewish-Hungarian pastry.

Ingredients:

Pastry
30 dkg flour
15 dkg strong white bread flour
3 teaspoon baking-powder
20 dkg margarine
20 dkg sugar
3 eggs

Filling
cinnamon
1 packet of vanilla sugar
50 dkg plum, (chopped in larger pieces)

Preparation:

First mix the whipped margarine with sugar. (I prefer if the margarine is soft like a liquid, it is easier to work with, so I put it into the microwave oven for half a minute, and I added the sugar only after.) After I added the eggs and the flour, contaning baking powder. I poured the dough into a buttered baking dish – of course, with the help of my busy niece – and placed the plum-pieces (poured by the vanilla sugar and cinnamon) on top of the pastry. We pushed the plum into the ough well so as not to stay on the top. It is needed to bake approx. 40 minutes in the 180-degree oven.

Plum Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
