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:
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.
