A German Plum Cake recipe, aka Pflaumenkuchen, is one of the most requested recipes. Many are made with yeast. This one isn't! It's so quick to make with "Quark-Öl" dough. I had to play a bit with the original recipe, since Quark isn't available here where I live. So, when I'm in a real hurry, this German plum cake with streusel is the winner!
Want to make Quark? I'll tell you below how you can make it at home. In the meantime, though, use Greek yogurt for this yummy treat!
However, my hubby and I like it a bit tart, so I omit the extra sugar and cinnamon. But, do serve this with a dollop of whipped cream. WUNDERBAR! A German plum pie :)
Most people say that when you use a "Quark-Öl" dough, it should be eaten fresh. However, I find that the recipe above keeps very well. The photo of the German plum cake at the top was taken on the third day.
Here are some different plum cakes to try:
