  • Summary

    The Austrians call this plum cake Zwetschgenkuchen. Traditionally, the cake has a yeasted batter but this streamlined version uses baking powder. The whole thing comes together quickly. You prepare the batter and spread it in a thin layer on the bottom of a springform pan. You arrange the sliced plums in concentric circles on top of the batter. You sprinkle on a little sugar, and you bake. As the cake bakes, the batter rises to embrace the plums and your cake looks like a work of art.
