Original Plum Torte
Posted by Peggy on August 7, 2013
Recipe: Original Plum Torte
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup unbleached flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
6-12 purple plums, halved (or quartered if large) to make 24 pieces
Sugar and cinnamon for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream sugar and butter in a bowl. Add flour, baking powder, salt and eggs, and beat well.
Spoon the batter into a spring form of 8, 9 or 10 inches. Place the plum halves skin side up on top of the batter. Sprinkle lightly with sugar, depending on the sweetness of the fruit. Sprinkle with about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, or to taste.
Bake on middle rack of oven for 40 to 50 minutes. Remove and cool; refrigerate or freeze if desired (but first, double-wrap the tortes in foil, place in a plastic bag, and seal). Or cool to lukewarm, and serve.
(To serve a torte that has been frozen, defrost and reheat it briefly at 300 degrees.)
