Malcolm’s Dragonlicious Plum Cake


  • 1 kg plums
  • 100 – 125 g butter
  • 125 g sugar
  • 2 – 3 eggs    
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 200 g flour
  • 2 level teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 – 4 tablespoons milk

Today chef Malcolm wants to show you a very simple recipe for plum cake. He’s got it from his dragon mum, and as everybody knows, mothers always have the best recipes. This cake is quickly made because the dough doesn’t need yeast.

And this is how it works:
Wash the plums and pick out the pits but leave the plums whole. Then mix the butter, sugar, eggs and salt until the dough gets fluffy. Stir in the rest of the ingredients. Now heat the oven to 170 to 190 °C (recirculating air 150 to 170 °C).

Fill the dough into a spring form with a diameter of 26 cm. Spread the plums circular on top, from the rim to the center, keeping them upright. Now you can put the cake into the oven and bake it for 40 to 50 minutes.

After baking, sprinkle the cake with sugar while it’s still the spring form. Then take off the ring of the form and let the cake cool down on a cooling rack. If you like, you can add fresh whipped cream when serving it… Yummy!
