German plum cake, aka Pflaumen-Streuselkuchen! So thankful to my niece, Melissa Fulson, for finding this long-lost family favorite from her Grandma (my hubby's Mutti)! Now that I've posted it, it'll be part of my traditional German baking as well :-) Melissa added that this is definitely not a quick recipe. But, it is definitely delicious!
I remember having it at my mutti-in-law's out in their lovely backyard. She was such a great cook and loved baking. This plum cake was served with a dollop of whipped cream on the side ... and no leftovers!
You can serve this plum cake either warm or cold. Ice cream or whipped cream on the side? WUNDERBAR!
Now, you may ask, why is the filling so red? Well, that depends on the type of plum you use. Keeping the skins on while cooking the filling increases the color. (If you prefer, you can peel the plums.)
