    Add eggs and milk and cook 7 min/ 90*C/ speed 4


    Pour into wide bowl to cool, sprinkle with a bit of sugar to avoid a skin forming.

    Grease a 26cm round spring form or line with baking paper.


    Melt butter in TM bowl 4min/ 60*C/ speed 1,


    let cool for a minute or so. 


    Add sugar, flour and vanilla paste, mix 5 sec/ speed 3 or 4 until you have a texture like breadcrumbs. 


    Press 2/3 of the streusel mix into cake tin to form the base, pushing it up the side a bit.


    Spread custard On base.


    Cut plums in half (or quarters if they are big), remove the stone and place them cut-side up on to custard.


    If you would like to use cinnamon, now is the time to sprinkle it over the plums.


    Press and rub the leftover streusel mix between your fingers and cover the plums with the streusel. Smaller and larger lumps look good!

    Delicious!
    I forgot to melt the butter before adding the sugar and flour, and it still worked perfectly. I ended up using the Turbo setting to quickly cut up the plums into smaller bits since my kids aren't keen on plums, and it turned out great! Everyone gobbled it up and asked for seconds! The custard is a great addition to this cake, and I'm sure it would be good with any type of fruit. Will make again! Thanks for the recipe!

    yum, plum time again!   tmrc_emoticons.)

    Yes, I made it twice already this year, and it does depend on the ripeness of the plums and also on the variety I suppose. This year I was given loads of very tart ones, as dark as they come. Great colours, great contrast in flavours and textures!

    Thank you all for taking time to comment!

    Very tasty!   Think next time I'll nuke my plums just a little so they soften up a bit more before i put them on the custard.  Could just be they weren't quite ripe enough. ..will definitely make again with some other flavor combos ...delicious thankyou

    Thank you for your comment!

    I understand your concern! As long as the cake is warm it feels a bit wobbly.

    Once it has cooled and the custard sets it is usually fine to cut into wedges, as you can see in the photo.

    It helps if you push the streusel base a bit up the wall to shape a shallow bowl to help contain the custard!

  • Great cake. I was worried

    Submitted by sho on 21. April 2014 - 20:25.

    Great cake. I was worried about it falling apart if I took the side off the tin, so served it from the tin. Not so pretty presentation wise, but the taste was great. Everyone enjoyed it, including all the kids.

    Thanks for the recipe.
