Plum cake is one of the most popular summer desserts. That is why we decided to bake this delicious plum dessert with yeast dough crumble. The cake is very tasty and juicy, when you bake it, it just disappears in a few minutes. This is the best recipe for cake yeast dough. The dough recipe is designed for one baking tray.
Even beginners can handle baking this cake, it is not hard. We need about two hours of time reserved for it, and we are good to go. We choose ripe and soft plums for the cake, so it doesn’t become sour.
We start by preparing the sourdough. After the sourdough rises, we make a soft dough. Before the dough rises, we need to prepare the baking tray, wash and stone the plums and prepare the crumble. Heat up the oven. Put baking paper onto the baking tray and grease it. Roll out the risen dough and put it onto the baking tray. Put the plums on it and sprinkle it with crumble.
- 200 ml lukewarm milk
- 20 g yeast
- 300 g flour
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- 30 g butter
- pinch of salt
Prepare the sourdough by mixing yeast, a spoon of sugar, a spoon of flour, a bit of lukewarm milk and let it rise in a warm place.
The crumble is used to finish the risen cakes.
Easy crumble topping recipe
The ratio of ingredients to crumble is 2: 1: 1 – two parts flour (coarse or semi-coarse), one part butter and one part sugar. The crumble should be crumbly, not greasy. We can add one vanilla sugar to make the cake smell nice.
Yeast dough preparation
Wipe the softened butter and sugar into the foam, add the egg yolks, sieved flour, salt, leavened sourdough and make the dough with lukewarm milk. The finished, well-prepared yeast dough is very smooth, soft and does not stick. Dust it with flour, cover the bowl with a tea towel and leave to rise in a warm place for about an hour.
Roll out the leavened dough and put it on a baking tray. Evenly put the plums on the dough and sprinkle with crumble. Let it rise for a while and bake the plum cake in a preheated oven at 180°C for approx. 40 minutes.
Bake the plum cake with crumble until it turns golden.
