Mini Plum Crumble Cakes

Plum season has finally arrived over here! In Germany you will see all bakeries selling a bunch of different plum cakes. You will find big trays of plum goodies
placed on the sales counter and presented at the shop windows.

I love plum cakes because of the sourness of the fresh plums embracing the buttery taste of the crumble.
Top them with cool whipping cream and sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon…mmhhh…HEAVEN!

For the Mini Plum Crumble Cakes I would recommend purchasing these mini dessert rings. You can find them on Amazon for a reasonable price.

This recipe of my Mini Plum Crumble Cake is so easy to do and just the right amount for a one on one coffee time with your friends. You could simply double the recipe and place those mini cakes on a pretty cake stand. Believe me, they look really cute dusted in confectioners sugar. 🙂

Mini Plum Crumble Cakes
Yield: 4 Mini Cakes
Ingredients:
300 g Fresh plums (cut into quarters)
125 g Butter
100g Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla extract
200 g All-purpose flour
50 g Rolled oats

Directions:
Preheat oven to 180 °C/355°F (top and bottom heat). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place 4 small round baking molds and lightly grease them with butter (I used mini “Dessert Rings” which are like mini springforms 8 cm x 4 cm ).

Melt the butter in microwave.

Add all the ingredients into the melted butter and stir with a wooden spoon; stir until it becomes a crumby dough.

Press about 2-3 Tbsp of the crumble dough into your baking pans using the back of a spoon.

Now add the the plums and top with the remaining crumble.

Bake at 180°C/355°F for 30 Minutes or until golden brown.
