Plum Pie

Autumn is the season of pies - apple, plum, pear, pumpkin - and we love them all! Yesterday I tried a new to me recipe for a plum pie - lots of butter and cinnamon and juicy plums, which combine into a genuinely delicious and aromatic coffee dessert.


Ingredients:

  • 80 g butter
  • 150 g sugar
  • 10 g baking powder
  • 8 g vanilla sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g flour
  • 16-18 plums
  • cinnamon + sugar for sprinkling

Beat the butter with the sugar, vanilla sugar and baking powder until homogenized. The butter needs to be soft, but not liquid. You can cream the butter if you want, but simple mixing is also sufficient. Add the eggs one by one to the butter-sugar mix and homogenize. Then add the flour. The batter is soft and creamy.

Pour the batter into the baking tray. Wash and dry the plums, halve them and arrange them on top of the batter, so that the plums cover the entire tray. Sprinkle on top with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. I used 1 tsp (5 g) cinnamon and 1 tbsp (20 g) sugar.

Place the baking tray in a preheated oven at 180C and bake until a toothpick test shows that the batter is baked. Better enjoyed cold with coffee or tea. You can sprinkle it with powdered sugar on top, or serve with whipped cream or ice cream.

My morning coffee yesterday morning. Yummy!!!
