German Plum Cake
serves 8
Ingredients:

1 cup All purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup milk
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 lb Damson Plums
2 large Egg Yolks
2/3 cup Heavy Cream
1/3 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Slivered Almonds
1/4 freshly grated Nutmeg
1/8 or a dash Angostura
teaspoon NUTMEG
DELETE cup 1/3 CUP OF MILK IS INSERTED TWICE


Sift the dry ingredients together and cut in the butter with two knives, or better yet, use the heel of each clean thumb against forefingers and pointing fingers to blend until mealy.
Add milk and mix just enough to combine well. Butter a shallow round pan, one with a removable bottom is best. Press the crust into the pan and up against the sides.
Arrange the plums which have been washed, split and pitted, with their cut sides up in an overlapping circular pattern on the crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
Then pour the mixture of yolks, sugar, cream, nutmeg and angostura over the plums, and top with almonds. Continue baking another 10 to 15 minutes until toppping is set and golden brown. Serve warm as dessert or coffee cake.
