Happy Friday. Casey here with a delicious plum torte recipe that I’m shamelessly borrowing from my friend and passing it along to all of you.
If you don’t like plums, no worries. The recipe works just as well with other fruit like cherries, peaches, pears or apples. And it freezes too.
The notes in ( ) are mine.
B-girl’s Plum Torte
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (and do use unsalted butter. It’s not as good with salted butter)
1 cup unbleached flour (I used regular all purpose flour and it came out fine)
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
24 halves pitted purple or prune plums (see note above – other fruit works too)
Topping: sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon
9 inch springform pan
Cook Time: 1 Hour
350 Degree Oven
Yield: 8 servings
1. Cream the sugar and butter. Add flour, baking powder, salt and eggs. Beat well.
2. Spoon the batter into the springform pan (I have used cooking spray or Cricso on the bottom to keep it from sticking).
3. Place the plums skin side up on top of the batter. Sprinkle lightly with with sugar and lemon juice. Sprinkle about a teaspoon of cinnamon or however much you like.
5. To serve frozen torte, defrost and reheat briefly at 300 degrees.
And there you have it! Who else enjoys fall baking?
