It is the time of year that my parents house is overloaded with plums. They only have two small plum trees but man, they produce a lot of plums! We have had plum jams and sauces and ice cream. And freezers full of plums of course.
So when I went home this past weekend I had to do some baking with them. We went out to visit my Nana and I made this Plum Krummeltorte to bring for afternoon tea.
It was super easy and super tasty. I based it off the krummeltorte recipe by The Destitute Gourmet. A krummeltorte is a German crumble cake (according to my friend Google) so eat this one with a plate.
- ~500g whole plums, pitted and chopped into small pieces
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1 Tbsp water
- 1 Tbsp corn flour
Simmer for 15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, then mix in corn flour thoroughly.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- ¾ cup sugar
- 100g butter, diced
- 2 eggs
Place everything but eggs in a food processor and pulse until combined. Add in the eggs and pulse again. The mixture should be quite crumbly but presses together.
Press two thirds of the mix into a lined slice tin. Pour the stewed plums over, and finish by crumbling the remaining flour mixture over top.
Bake at 180°C for 35 minutes. Allow to cool in the tin.
Powder with icing sugar before serving.
And we of course finished the day with a couple of hours at the beach and a Tip Top ice cream.
