Want some plum cake recipes, aka Zwetschgenkuchen? Easy ones, quick ones, traditional ones, and just plain delicious ones? The first one, shown here, was sent in by one of my dear Facebook fans, Dorka. She has kindly permitted me to share her Zwetschgenkuchen mit Keks-und Rührteig … (Plum Cake with a cookie and a cake crust) ... making a wonderful treat served with whipped cream.
Below that, you'll find her German recipe for this. AND, other Plum Cakes that you'll enjoy!
Ingredients for Cookie Crust
Ingredients for Cake Crust
Check out the Streuselkuchen that my niece, Melissa, passed on from her German Oma. It’s a bit different than most. It has a cake bottom, a cooked plum filling, and then it’s topped with streusel. Delicious! Click here for the recipe.
Looking for a plum cake with a yeast base? Here’s one I make, either with plums or peaches, using the bread machine to make quick work of it. It’s also covered with streusel. So wunderbar! Check out my peach or plum cake recipe.
It may appear sort of strange to have two different types of crust for a cake.
It’s not that much more work to make a double crust. In this case, you quickly make the 'cookie' crust, which reminds me of a streusel batter, and while it’s baking in the oven, you make the ‘cake’ crust.
In no time at all you’ll have a wonderful Zwetschgenkuchen (or Pflaumenkuchen) to set before your family.
German cake recipes and others can also be found on Dorka’s https://www.facebook.com/Familienrezepte that she is one of the admins.
Dorka loves to do German baking and posts recipes for all types of German cooking. Do check out her page.
Here is the above recipe as she sent it to me, in German.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
