"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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zX2nnaLaxio#! 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.  source: http://jewish.hu/view.php?cgroup=receptek

A financier is usually a petit four, made of an almond batter with egg whites and browned butter. This full-size financier was developed by Hervé Poussot, my friend and colleague, to take advantage of the amazing apples that are available in the fall. Consider it a French version of apple pie, but serve it without the ice cream. The moisture of the mix and the texture of the apples with the flavor of the browned butter make this delicious on its own. (We don’t decorate with fresh apples, because they turn brown, and then the tart doesn’t look nice.) This tart will keep for a week in the refrigerator.

Microwaved Warm Chocolate Cake
Here's a great no-bake recipe for warm chocolate cake. Just 80 seconds in the microwave takes the batter from raw to cake. That's a lot faster than popping a cake in the oven, that's for sure. An easy chocolate-Chambord sauce is the icing (or rather, the sauce) on the cake. Irresistible! See all chocolate recipes.
