Delicious and Elegant Plum Torte Recipe
This Plum Torte is my new favourite summer dessert because it’s so easy to make and it tastes divine! I know I’ll be making this every summer from now on!
Serves: 8
  • ½ cup of softened butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 12-15 plums, halved and pitted
  • To top:
  • 2 teaspoons extra sugar
  • Juice of half a small lemon
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  1. Grease a 23cm (9 inch) flan dish and preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Cream the butter and sugar using a stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs and beat to combine.
  4. Add the sifted flour, baking powder, and salt and beat mixture until well combined.
  5. Spoon the cake batter into the prepared flan dish and use a spatula to level the top.
  6. Arrange the plum halves on top of the batter (just lightly sit them on top; don’t push them into the batter).
  7. Squeeze half a lemon roughly over the top of the plums then sprinkle with the extra sugar and cinnamon.
  8. Bake for 50 mins to 1 hour, torte is cooked when golden brown and a skewer, inserted into the cake part, comes out clean.
  9. Allow to cool down a bit before serving with cream or ice cream (torte is delicious warm or cold!).
