Plum butter and vanilla cake

by | Dec 22, 2023 | Desserts

Plum butter, with its concentrated plum flavor and smooth consistency, plays a starring role in this delectable plum butter and vanilla cake, making it a truly unforgettable treat for any occasion. The cake consists of two double layers, 2-2 cake layers are sandwiched with plum butter. Each layer is crafted by rolling out a piece of dough into a thin rectangle, generously spreading it with the rich and velvety plum butter, delicately covering it with another layer of dough, and then baking in the oven.

The filling of the cake is a blend of a cooked cream and butter creamed with vanilla sugar. It complements the natural sweetness of the plum butter. Half of the filling is spread between the double cake layers, while the remaining portion is lavishly spread on top of the cake. The cake is adorned with a sprinkling of grated dark chocolate.

If you are looking for a Hungarian recipe that hasn't been published on this website yet, let me know, and I'll do my best to post it.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
