German Plum Streusel Coffee Cake

Elsa and I spent the better part of the morning in bed watching TV. By the time we're up and about it was lunchtime.....

So, it was off to the gym for me, while Elsa entertained herself to an hour on the computer. I managed to do a 3km jog on the treadmill at the gym.... To end what seemed an idyllic (some say mundane) existence, Elsa and I made this more-ish cake ......pops, you don't know what you're missing.....yummmm!

German Plum Streusel Coffee Cake

For the Streusel you will need

3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. softened butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mix all above ingredients together.


16 halved & pitted, plums
1/4 cup granulated white sugar (for coating plums)
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups flour
3/4 cup granulated white sugar
1/4 cup soft shortening
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk

Gently mix plum halves with 1/4 cup sugar until fruit is evenly coated.

Combine the sifted flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Sift into mixing bowl.

Cut shortening into dry ingredients with pastry blender. Add egg, beaten until thickened. Combine with milk. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter should be thick much like cookies batter.

Spread half of batter into buttered baking dish.

Sprinkle with half the streusel mixture.

Distribute 16 plum halves evenly over the surface, spread remaining batter over the plum halves; cover with the remainder of the streusel mixture and top with the remaining plum halves.

Bake in a 180C oven until done, about 50 minutes.
