Plums are a rare ingredient in cakes. With our Plum Marble Cake, we bring this lesser-known variety of plum into the spotlight. Unlike sweet, soft plums, plums have hard, slightly bitter flesh that can be easily removed from the stone. So if you want to give your cake a fruity taste without making it too sweet, then plums are for you.
Late summer is plum season. So now is the perfect time to buy from your local farmers. Pay attention to the origin of your fruit in the supermarket to pay attention to the environment. Our plum cake can be prepared in functional bread and easily cut into small pieces. The perfect summer cake for you and your guests!

Juicy combination: plum marble cake
This fruit plum marble cake is perfect for late summer!
Wash the plums, halve them and stone them. Cream together the butter, sugar and a pinch of salt. Mix eggs one by one. Mix flour and baking powder, mix in 2 tbsp milk. Divide the dough in half, mix the cocoa and plum jam in one half.
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees fan. Pour the light and dark batter alternately into a well-greased baking pan (30 cm long, 1.8 liter capacity), adjusting each layer. Close the plums together at the top.
Bake in a preheated oven for 50 minutes. Do the chopstick test. Remove, allow to cool briefly, then carefully turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
Mix powdered sugar with 2-3 tablespoons of milk until smooth. Pour the coating over the cake and let it dry. It tastes good with sour cream.
