Polish Plum Cake

This is a traditional polish fruit cake called Placek ze sliwkami I bake in mid-August when first summer plums appear on the markets. This sour-sweet treat is actually an autumnal cake in which traditionally yellow-fleshed dark Hungarian Plums are used. We love homemade Placek ze sliwkami because is very comforting and full of fresh fruits. Perfect to feed the crowd and as a fabulous dessert for a garden party or picnic. If you don’t spot Hungarian Plums on the market or supermarket, other varieties such as Damsons Plums and Italian Prunes Plums work well either. Find the recipe here...
