Autumn joy: Plum cake



Hello :) 

Autumn is just an amazing season, with the richness of goodies we can find and  the mild days to bask in the sun. 

So for those quiet moments when you just crave for something sweet here is a quick and easy recipe for plum cake: 


Ingredients: 

5-6 plums 

5 eggs

100 gr (1 cup) of flour 

10 spoons sugar 

vanilla sugar or essence 

4 spoons oil (sunflower) 

1 tablespoon of baking powder 

Baking time: 25-30min; Prep time: 15 min


Wash and cut the plums into small piece and then cover them with 2-3 spoons of sugar. 

Eggs are whisked with the rest of sugar until they triple the volume. Then you can slowly add the flour and incorporate it into the eggs mix. Now it is the time to add the oil and the baking powder too. 

On the tray for baking, lay a thing layer of oil and then flour. Add a first row of fruits and then the batter. Add the rest of fruits and the rest of batter and it's ready to go into the oven.

The oven needs to be preheated at 200 degrees C. 

I baked it for 25-30 min at 200 degrees C and then just checked it with a toothpick.  


The result is amazing: a soft and extremely flavoured cake, the nice aroma filled the whole house. 

Enjoy!

Sour cherries cake

Hellooo :)
What could be more unplanned than to receive sour cherries in a tram ride? Yesss, that's how I ended up with about 2 kilos of sour cherries, from a very kind grandpa :P

So who said work is over after work? For me not.

I had to bake this cake with these gorgeous sour cherries.
So here is what you need:

- 400 gr sour cherries, seedless
- 150 gr sugar
- 250 gr flour
- 5 eggs
- vanilla sugar, rum essence, cinnamon
- 75 gr butter
- baking powder



Well, the process is known - separate the yolks from the whites, add the sugar, and blend them well, till they are foam.
the yolks with the rest of sugar, essence, baking powder, butter, flour- mix them
Then the 2 bowls, mix them together, gently.


This time, I am going to show you how I prepare the tray, with no baking paper - you need a bit of butter, which you use to grease the tray, then you add flour and try to make it cover all the corners too :) 


The tray with the cherries in the preheated oven: 


 And that's the final result, the cut result, since I didn't have patience anymore to wait for it to cool down:



The taste was delicious, judging by the great feedback I got from my colleagues at work. 
Try it for yourselves ;)
