Ingredients German Holiday Plum Cake

1 Baking Mix 
1 spring form Ø 10 inches, some butter 
6 tbsp milk
100 g soft butter
2 eggs
1 jar plums (drained weight 385g) or alternatively canned sour cherries
400 ml cold heavy cream
100ml warm water

Baking Instructions

  • Grease the bottom of the spring form and around the rim.
  • Pre-heat oven to 340 F
  • Place baking mix for the dough in a bowl. Add butter, milk and egg.
  • With a hand mixer knead first on low speed and then on high speed for 3 min.
  • Pour batter into spring form. Spread even.

  • Bake for 30 min on middle rack.
  • When done use a knife and release the edges from the form, then release form. Let cool off completely on a rack.
  • Place the cake on a cake platter. 
  • With a tablespoon remove the inside of the cake - 1/2cm deep. Leave an edge of 1cm.
  • Keep the crumbles in a bowl and make them a bit smaller.
  • Drain the plums and place in a sieve. Spread them onto the cake.
  • Beat heavy cream until firm.
  • Use the mix for the cream filling and combine with water in a bowl. Mix well until smooth. Add the whipped cream in 2 portions. Then add the cinnamon-sugar-streusel mix. This is your filling cream.
  • Spread the filling cream like a dome all over the cake, from the edges to the bottom. Sprinkle with the crumbles that were removed from the cake. If needed press gently into cake.
  • Place cake for 2 hours in the fridge. 
  • Before serving sprinkle with decorative sugar.
