150 g ground poppy
100 g butter, room temperature
100 g sugar
1 pinch of salt
25 g flour
15 g ground almond
600 g plum
2 tablespoon plum jam
powder sugar for serving
Butter a cake form and preheat the oven to 175°C. Whisk butter and 75 g of sugar until frothy, then add the egg yolks one by one and mix well. Beat egg white with a pinch of salt, slowly beat in the rest of the sugar. Mix poppy, almond and flour into the egg yolk and fold in the beaten egg white. Pour batter into the baking form, put the halved plums on top of the cake and bake for 45 minutes. Warm plum jam and spread it on the top of the baked cake. Serve with powder sugar.
A gorgeous cake! Perfect with a cup of tea!
What a lovely cake! I'm intrigued by the use of ground poppy seeds. I've never seen that done before. I love plums, so I'm going to try to make time to bake this. I hope you are having a great day. Blessings...Mary
