Ingredients for plum cake with streusel: here’s what you need
You will need: 150 grams of cold butter, 150 grams of sugar, 300 grams of wheat flour, 700 grams of prunes, 6 tablespoons of sugar, 1 package of vanilla sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, a little butter, 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
Here’s how the crushed plum cake works: Put the flour in a large bowl and mix it with the sugar. Then add the cold butter a little at a time and knead quickly with your hands to make a small crispy dough. This must be done quickly, otherwise the butter will melt from the heat of your hands.
Line a springform pan with baking paper. Press two-thirds of the crumble into the mold, pulling a small edge up. Put the base in the refrigerator.
Now for the plum cake, wash the plums with the crumb, cut them in half, remove the stone and cut them in half again. Melt some butter in a large saucepan, add the plums and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of sugar. Add vanilla sugar. When a little juice comes out, stir in the starch and cook on low heat for a few minutes.
