Have you been a picky eater during your childhood? I definitely was! Besides meat where the fat was visible I refused to eat fruit cakes with baked fruits. The squishy texture of those fruits gave me the creeps. Anyways, now that I am mature (at least concerning my biological age) I hope that my taste buds changed as well. And, to start my “fruit cake therapy”, I decided to try granny’s plum cake.
Contrary to my expectations, it tastes good. The fruits are topped with a creamy layer consisting of egg, yogurt, vanilla sugar and cinnamon. Okay…I actually drowned my plums in it.
Are you interested? Well, here is the recipe for granny’s plum cake:
Ahhh…there is one thing. In Germany we have to different types of plums. The recipe originally uses the sweeter plums which I haven’t bought. It was much easier to pick up a ready-made basket full of sweet and sour plums instead of picking the other ones piece by piece. Yeah! I am a little bit lazy. Anyways, what I wanted to say: Don’t worry if you choose the sourer ones. The fruit cake will still taste good.
With this in mind,
Take a plummy risk.
