Yummy Plum Torte

Today I am shamelessly borrowing my friend’s plum torte recipe and passing it along to all of you.

IMG_3600If 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

You’ll need:

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

2 eggs

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 degrees

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients Assemble!

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.

We interrupt this recipe for a cuteness!

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Remove and cool; refrigerate or freeze if desired. Or cool to lukewarm and serve plain or with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping.


5. To serve frozen torte, defrost and reheat briefly at 300 degrees.
