Happy Labour Day Weekend!!
Summer break is almost over; another new school year starting and because this will be my son’s final year, grade 12; it will be extra special. Time sure goes by too quick sometimes, lol.
I’m loving all the wonderful local fruits we have in season now and I couldn’t resist to make a plum cake. A Streusel-topping was my sons wish:)
Super yummy, I hope you’ll give it a try!
Zwetschgenkuchen mit Streusel/Plum cake with Streusel
- 250 g spelt flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 80 ml maple syrup
- 100 g butter, soft
- about 18 plums, cut in halves
- 60 ml maple syrup
- 100 g butter, cold
- 150 g spelt flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
-Flour and grease a 22 cm Springform.
-Whisk the butter with the egg and maple syrup. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, then add to the butter mix, stir until well combined.
-Roll out about a 1/3 directly onto the bottom of the Springform, I used my hands, then close the form and line the sides with the rest of the dough, about half way up.
-Fill the form with the plums. Combine all the ingredients for the Streusel and spread evenly onto the plums.
-Bake in preheated oven, 350 F / 180 C, for about 55 minutes.
