Plum streusel cake

DSC_0566This is another recipe using the prune plums my mother brought. This cake is perfect to make and freeze in portions and you can warm and serve it any time a spontaneous guest comes over. That´s what my grandmother always has in her freezers… lots of tray bakeries which she made a couple of weeks ago and anytime I come to visit her,

she either has fresh homemade baked or warmed up cakes for me. Mmmh and anything topped with streusel is my favorite so this time I made this cake for my grandmother and she absolutely loved it too!


You will need (for one tray):

  • 250g flour
  • 40g butter
  • 1/8l milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package of dry yeast
  •  40g powdered sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tbs. of vanilla sugar
  • plums, cut in halves

Combine flour, dry yeast, salt, vanilla sugar and powdered sugar in a medium sized bowl and stir using a wooden spoon. Melt butter over medium temperature, add milk to cool off. Add eggs and butter mixture to flour mixture and start kneading dough. Knead until well incorporated and dough is nice and smooth. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for a half an hour.

Roll out dough on baking tray and top with plums. Then prepare streusel:

  • 85g flour
  • 130g sugar
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 4 tbs. butter, melted

Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. Form streusel using a fork and top your plum cake with streusel. Bake in oven for about 30- 40 minutes (oven temperature 180°C) until streusel turn golden brown. Dust with powdered sugar and serve (or freeze in portions).

Have a yummy coffee and tea time,
