    Haven't been here in a little while ,wanted to show you all what I did yesterday. Autumn is my favorite time and I love to decorate and bake. I made a Autumn tree with one of my skinny alpine trees and after I got done decorating the house I made two german plum cakes.

    Wow Wow Wow thank you for the inspiration !! Your decorations are beautiful and those cakes look amazing. Fall is also my favorite time of year and now I need to get into the attic and bring my decorations down. Wish I could bake like that but that is impossible. Have a great day and thanks again for sharing.

    cakes look yummy. Decorations are cute. The only decoration I've made is the tp roll pumpkin made of a fat quarter, but no one's guess what the base is yet. (And I learned how to make on the board!

    LOLOL about the cakes.
    This is an old german recipe . it is a lot denser and not as sweet as american cakes. I have made this with plums or apples and everybody loves it.
    1/2 cup sweet butter
    3/4 cup sugar
    2lg eggs
    1tsp lemon juice
    1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 cup milk
    about 7 plums
    Beat butter,sugar,eggs and lemon juice until creamy
    blend flour,baking powder and salt in seperate bowl. Add to the butter mix, alternate with the milk.
    cut plums in half remove pit but not the skin. cut plum in a fan shape-about 4 cuts-sprinkle with a bit of sugar and almond slices.
    spread in greased spring form. bake at 350 50 to 60 min. do the toothpick test, because all ovens are different.mine takes about 60 min.
    You can make apple, nectarine or fresh peach cake out of this recipe. they are all good.Sometime i use chopped walnuts and sometimes i add a little vanilla flavoring..........Enjoy :))

    Do you put the plums in the pan first or on top of the batter? (This looks like something DH would enjoy.)

    Just lay the plums on top of the dough. the dough is creamy,so I just kind of push them down a little. as the cake bakes the dough will come up and around the plums a little.
