German Plum Cake

    1 hour 30 minutes

    This is perhaps closer to a sweet tea bread than a cake but it is absolutely delicious while warm from the oven.

    1. Dissolve yeast in warm milk and add 1 teaspoon sugar to get it started. Leave for 10 - 20 minutes, or until frothy.
    2. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
    3. Place all the other ingredients, except the plums, in a large bowl.
    4. Stir in yeast mixture and knead into a dough ball. Let it rise until doubled.
    5. In the meantime take the stones out of the plums, cut them in half and then make a small cut in the lower half of the halved plum.
    6. Knead the dough again and place in 23cm baking tin. Arrange the plums so they are peeking out a little from the dough.
    7. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes, checking after 30 minutes to see if it is ready.
    8. Mix icing sugar with a pinch of cinnamon. Spread it over the still hot plum cake right after it comes out of the oven.
    9. Ready! Eat it slightly warm.
