Plum crumble cake

plum crumble cake
For the cake
2 cups flour
3/4 to 1 cup vanilla infused sugar *
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup butter
plums to cover the cake


*It depends on the sweetness of the plum, I used about 8 plums with pit removed and cut in half.

Melt the butter and cool.  Sift flour and baking powder together, then add the sugar and eggs.  Rub together using the fingers then add the melted butter and form a dough.  Cover the smooth dough with a plastic wrap and cool in the fridge for an hour.


For the crumble

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon ground
Combine everything by rubbing the ingredients between the fingers to get a coarse texture.


Prepare a 13"x9" glass baking pan with baking paper and press the chilled dough evenly.  Press the tops with the halved, pitted plums.  Cover the cake with the crumble.  Bake the cake at 350F for about 40 to 50 minutes.  When the cake is tested with a skewer and it comes out clean, remove from the oven, cool and then cut to serve.
