Personal Notes:
If you bought some plums but still have about 2 pounds left over then here is a recipe that will make them disappear.

plum cake, Zwetschgenkuchen

yeast dough for a whole tray:

500 gr. flour 100 gr. butter
20 gr. fresh yeast or 1 pack dry yeast 1 egg
250 ml milk 1 pinch salt
75 gr. sugar some breadcrums

Mix the dough and let it rise for about 1 hour.
In the meantime take about 2 to 3 pounds of plums, wash them, then remove the pits. After the dough has risen, put it on the tray and form a boarder. Now put a little bit of breadcrumbs down. Now add the plums evenly.

For about 25 to 35min  bake by 200 °C.

Option 1 (Vanilla pudding filling):
while baking the cake, make a fresh vanilla pudding. After about 20min, take the cake out and fill all the gaps in the cake with the pudding. Now bake for another 5 to 10min.

Option 2 (crumble topping):
Instead of the vanilla pudding, you can add crumble topping. Prepare the crumbles like below and put on top of the plums.


300 gr. flour 200 gr. butter
125 gr. sugar some cinnamon or vanilla sugar

Directions crumble topping:
Mix the flour with the cold butter and sugar by hand for about 2min.
