You can still get plums and damson plums everywhere here in Germany… but that will be over soon and then the dark time of the year begins – the time of frozen berries and fruits ;P Well… at least if you want to bake with seasonal and regional fruits and berries. Until then – let’s make the best out of it and prepare one last dessert with plums: a delicious Damson Plum Crumble. So easy to prepare and so good at the same time. Served with some vanilla ice cream or custard this is one of my favorite desserts. Of all times! ;)
Summer is the season for fresh fruits and berries. If you can get all that fresh from the farmer’s market it’s a must to make something with it, right?! ;) Right now we’re in plum season – this means, of course, you got to bake something with plums. Normally, we would make a big tray of plum streusel cake to celebrate plums and the start of the season but this year decided to bake something different. A delicious Damson Plum Poppy Seed (Streusel) Cheesecake. A great combination in my opinion. Isn’t it? ;)
The end of the month is almost here. That means it’s time for another “Bake Together – The Baking Surprise” with Andrea from Zimtkeks & Apfeltarte. This month is all about “autumn pies”. I mean autumn is here. Seems quite logic to make pies that are fall themed, right? ;P The chances we gonna take the same route are quite slim this time I guess. There are so many pies you can make… so I am really excited to see what Andrea did this time. I decided to bake this veeeery delicious Damson Plum Pie here. If you like damson plums and simple cakes like a Plum Tray Bake you probably love this pie here ;)
Today I got a very simple and easy recipe for you. In Germany, you would say “unaufgeregt” which means “unagitated”. Something to make you feel good without being complicated. Nothing that needs 50 different ingredients nor 20 steps to be done… Today I show you one of my favorite recipes in the world: a simple Rice Pudding with Damson Plum Compote. Soulfood par excellence ;)
The plum season has started and those little purple fruits are now available everywhere. The supermarkets are overflowing with plums. This means it’s normally time to make a nice Damson Plum Cake Tray Bake again. Well… this year I decided to do something different. Smaller, but no less delicious: 6 Spices Damson Plum Pastries with a simple and easy curd-oil-batter. This plum season couldn’t start better… ;)
I assume you all know what a cobbler is, right? If not… it is about time you get to know it ;) Cobblers are delicious sweet treats with a layer of fruit (compote) and a layer of crunchy dough on top… served with some ice cream one of my favorite deserts! This one here is a (Wholemeal) Damson Plum & Apple Cobbler – your new favorite treat. Pretty sure about that! ;)
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
