Italian Plum Cake 意大利李子蛋糕


I made this Italian plum cake yesterday with plums from South Africa, it was like butter cake bake in tart or pie pan with some stone fruits..Nevertheless, it was nice and buttery !
After this post, I will go off for another "tumpang trip" , and back after a week..

After google for few recipes, all almost using the same ingredients like making a butter cake..So I use my usual butter cake recipe to make the base..

When I preparing this cake, I realized that there is no stock of milk and cinnamon powder in my pantry..You know how i proceed with my cake? I use creamer (for Nescafe use) and add hot water so it became milk. And I replaced mixed spices powder (use for kek lapis last time) with cinnamon powder. Luckily it still turned out good ^_^..

Hi Sonia,

Do you think I can use frozen mixed berries instead? Do I have to thaw in advance?

Thanks
