  • 3 pc eggs

  • 100 g Butter soft

  • Marinate the plums in sugar and cinnamon.
  • Preheat oven at 190°C hot air. Grease the cake tin, 24 cm diameter, with enough butter. I always like to use a kitchen paper instead of a kitchen brush.
  • Beat the whipped eggs, sugar, lemon grater and vanilla sugar until foamy for 4 minutes.
  • Add baking powder, flour and butter to the mixture and mix for another 3 minutes.
  • Add some brown rum to the dough.
  • The dough must fall from the spoon tear-resistant. If the rum makes the dough too soft, add some flour.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the baking tin and spread evenly with the cake spatula.
  • Place the plum halves marinated with sugar and cinnamon, inside down, in the dough.
  • Bake the plum cake for 30-35 minutes at 180°C, remove the ring from the baking tin while still hot and allow the fruit cake to cool.
