Hello lovelies, today I have another sweet recipe for you: plum cake with crumbles and curd layer. Figs, plums, apples and pumpkins – I think these are my favorite ingredients at the moment. The plum and apple harvest is very opulent this year. We‘ve been driving by many fruit trees this summer which appear to bend under the weight of apples and plums. Unfortunately we also saw some trees or rather branches that collapsed because they couldn’t carry this large amount of fruits. We definitely have to take advantage of the rich harvest. Next to apple sauce and plum sauce, one of our favorites is a delicious cake.

Plum cake with crumbles and curd layer

This plum cake with crumbles and a curd layer has a fluffy yeast dough, a vegan curd coating, fresh delicious plums of course and sweet crumbles on top. Crumbles are the best part of the cake, don’t you think? I still remember very well how I loved to steal them off the cake in an unobserved moment as a child – and also how I fought over the biggest crumble with my brother :-).

Cake base:
  • 100 ml 1/2 cup plant based milk
  • 2 Tbsp raw cane sugar
  • 1 tsp dried yeast
  • 250 gr 2 cups flour (i.e. spelt)
  • 50 gr 1/4 cup margarine
  • Pinch of salt
Curd layer:
  • 400 gr 1 ¾ cups plant based curd (i.e. soy curd)
  • 3 Tbsp raw cane sugar
  • 1-2 tsp vanilla extract or pulp of one vanilla bean
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • 25 ml 1/8 cup canola oil
  • 30 gr 1/4 cup starch
  • 50 gr 1/4 cup raw cane sugar
  • 120 gr 1 cup flour (i.e. spelt)
  • 75 gr 1/3 cup vegan butter/margarine
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Approx. 20 plums


Cake base:
  • Mix all ingredients for the yeast dough and knead well to a smooth dough
  • Cover it up and allow it to rise until it doubled up (approx. 1 hour)
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F)
  • Grease a spring form (ø 26 cm) and put the dough in it
Curd layer:
  • Put all ingredients into a bowl or mixer and mix well until the mixture is smooth
  • Put the curd coating on top of the dough
  • Mix all ingredients for the crumbles until it becomes a crumbly dough
  • Cut the plums in half, remove stones and place them on the curd coating
  • Put the crumbles on top of the plums
  • Bake the cake for 30-40 minutes

The cake will get very moist because of the plums and the curd coating, that’s just how we like it. I even take it out the oven a little earlier because we like it when the inside of the cake is still a little raw. But of course this is a personal reference. The girls ask me pretty much every day when will I bake this delicious cake again. I think I will create the same recipe with apples next, this sounds delicious too. You can also leave out the curd coating and bake a simple yeast cake with crumbles – also very tasty.

We sprinkled some powdered sugar on top of the cake, something I like on all crumble cakes – just a force of habits but of course you can leave the powdered sugar out.

I think I may have to return to the kitchen now and bake the apple version, I really feel like it! But I will add two more apple and plum recipes to the blog this week (or next week). One is for very delicious apple pancakes and one for plum chocolate muffins with walnuts. Luckily apple season lasts very long, so I can post many more recipes for you. And if you wanna try the best vegan cheesecake in the meantime, you can find the recipe here.

Love, Verena

Hi Verena,

This cake is a dream. I made it the second time today. Instead of soy curd, I used the new crème fraîche with one portion natural ricotta from new roots. I love the zesty hint in the cream base and the cinnamon in the crumbles. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough vegan butter for the crumble and substituted with Shea butter, I defo prefer the vegan butter.

Can’t wait until the cake has cooled down.

Much love,

Liebe Verena,

Das Rezept ist mir sofort ins Auge gesprungen. Ich habe Pflaumen anstelle von Zwetschgen und pflanzliche Crème Fraîche mit veganem Ricotta gemischt. Ich liebe die Streusel mit einem Hauch Zimt darin.
Echt ein Knüller!

Herzlich Heike
