Ingredients

20 mirabelle plums

50 gr softened butter

100 gr sugar

65 gr sliced almonds


Dough :

25 mirabelle plums

100 gr softened butter

1 Tbsp vanilla extract

75 gr brown sugar

220 gr flour

5 gr baking powder

3 eggs

10 cl milk

25 gr almond powder

Materials

20x20 cm silicon mold

Preparation

  • Step 1 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Top layer cake : Combine softened butter and sugar. Spread the mix at the bottom of your mold and allow this to bake, in a pre-heat oven, for 10 minutes at 350F (180°C).
  • Step 2 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Pull the mold out of the oven and sprinkle with almond flakes. Wash, dry, halve and remove the seeds from the plums. Add the chopped fruit to the mold and arrange in a single layer on top of the almond and butter sugar mixture. Set aside.
  • Step 3 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Dough : With the help of a hand mixer, cream the softened butter and sugar together until creamy. Add the eggs and mix until smooth.
  • Step 4 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Add the almond powder, the baking powder, the vanilla extract and the milk. Whisk until everything is well mixed. Now, add the flour. It will be better if you add 1/3 and mix, add another third of the flour and mix again. Finally add the last third of the flour and mix until completly smooth.
  • Step 5 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    As we are using fresh fruit, be sure the plums are washed. Next, halved them and remove the seeds. Pour the mix on top of the plums in the mold.
  • Step 6 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Bake in the centre of the oven (pre heat to 350ºF / 180ºC) for 30 minutes or until the top of the cake is golden and springy (when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean).
  • Step 7 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    Remove the cake from the baking sheet and server at room temperature.

    If you prefer, you can bake it during 5 mins more on the grill for getting some golden brown almonds on top.
  • Step 8 - Mirabelle plum cake with almonds
    That´s it !
