Ingredients Overturned cake with caramelized plums

for the caramel and plum layer

  • 120 grams of caster sugar
  • 700 grams of healthy plums, weighed with seeds

cake composition:

  • 4 eggs
  • 200 grams of sugar
  • 1 good salt powder
  • 2 sachets of vanilla sugar / 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 200 grams of flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder or grated peel of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon grated baking powder
  • 125 grams of butter with 82% fat, melted, but not hot

Preparation Overturned cake with caramelized plums & # 8211 shape preparation

1. For form preparation, two approaches are possible. If you make the cake in a saucepan or a compact form, the sugar can be caramelized directly in it. If you use a form with removable walls & # 8211 as I also used it, it is preferable to caramelize the sugar separately, in a saucepan, until it acquires a golden-brown color, then pour it into the form. Otherwise, there is a danger that the sugar will drip during caramelization by joining the form, directly on the stove.

2. Whether you have burned the sugar directly into the mold or prepared it separately in a saucepan and then poured it into the shape of the cake, it must be carefully tilted on all sides so that the bottom is completely covered. of caramel. Be careful not to burn yourself, the caramel drops are very hot.

3. Allow the burnt sugar to cool and wash the plums well, then divide them into two pieces, removing the seeds. Arrange the concentrically shaped plum halves, with the torn side down, over the layer of burnt sugar.

Overturned cake with caramelized plums & # 8211 cake composition preparation

4. The first thing I did was turn on the oven, which I set to 180 ° C. Then, in a deep bowl, I put the 4 whole eggs, the sugar for the cake composition, the salt and the vanilla sugar. If you have a mixer, even an ordinary one, by hand, the composition will beat perfectly even with whole eggs. I beat the eggs with the sugar and salt at high speed, until the composition turned into a frothy cream, light in color.


5. Because I have a stand mixer, I took advantage of the time he did his job alone and mixed the flour and baking powder in a bowl. This only takes about 30 seconds, so if you have a mixer that you have to hold by hand, you can do it even after the eggs are completely beaten. When the eggs are well beaten, the foam must be thick enough to maintain its shape for ten seconds, when it drains slowly from the mixer.


6. Immediately after the eggs are well beaten, without wasting any time, the dry substances are sifted in a bowl, through a sieve.

7. Incorporate the flour and melted butter, but not hot, into the beaten egg base, using a flexible spatula. The movements must be gentle, constantly raising the composition from the bottom of the bowl to the surface and folding it over the one left in the bowl, while gradually pouring the butter. Repeat, rotating the bowl from time to time, until the composition for the cake is homogeneous and no more than that. Under no circumstances mix evenly or too hard so as not to remove the air contained in the beaten eggs.

8. Immediately after homogenization, pour the cake composition into the form, above the plums, and level gently.

Baking and turning

9. As soon as the cake composition has been molded, it is advisable that the oven temperature has already reached 180 ° C. Bake the cake at a medium height, the heat to come from above and below, without ventilation. Baking takes 40 minutes, and if the cake tends to brown faster than that, cover with a damp sheet of baking paper and continue baking until the indicated total time has elapsed. Finally, the cake should be golden brown and a toothpick dipped in the dough should come out clean.

10. Allow the cake to cool in the form for 20-25 minutes, then, while still hot, pass it with a knife with a thin blade around it and turn it over on a plate large enough. Carefully remove the shape and if one of the plums has somehow stuck to the shape, peel it off and place it in its place gently. Drain the syrup well over the cake and allow to cool well.

12. The cake can be served slightly warm or completely cold, as desired. I put some beaten and unsweetened cream next to it and it was perfect, according to our taste.

May it be useful to you! Note: cakes with nectarines, peaches, apples, pears, etc. can be prepared in exactly the same way.

Pear and almond cake

I bring you again a good seasonal dessert flavored with pears, cinnamon and almonds, which is also with a lower caloric content due to the natural sweetener Green Sugar used instead of sugar.

Green Sugar is a natural sweetener obtained from Stevia rebaudiana and erythritol extract (obtained from corn), which does not change the taste of the preparations and can also be used in preparations that require thermal preparation.

I have been using it for a very long time and I am super excited that I managed to replace, in part, the sugar with this sweetener.
And because in October we celebrate 5 years since Green Sugarhe is with us, I say we can sing "Happy Birthday Green Sugar" together.

  • 150 grams of butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 4 tablespoons good brandy (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • in addition: butter for greasing tart form, flour for sprinkled, powdered sugar for. finished

Preparation Tart with pears and almond cream:

First, the tart dough, which needs a rest time in the fridge of at least 1 hour before being used:

1. flour, sugar, salt and grated lemon peel (about 1 tablespoon of lemon peel) mix well in a bowl (picture 1)

2. add the butter cut into small pieces or grated (repeat, the butter should be very cold, right from the freezer & # 8211 picture 2)

3. pulsate with the robot several times, until the ingredients have a sandy appearance, or incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork (picture 3)

4. beat the yolk with 2 tablespoons of very cold water and add it over the rest of the ingredients, kneading quickly by hand or with the robot (picture 4)

5. add 1 tablespoon of cold water at a time until the dough binds (picture 5) the amount of water needed may differ depending on the flour used, be careful not to add more than necessary and do not knead excessively, because it would damage the final quality of the dough.

Gather the dough together in a ball that is wrapped and refrigerated for at least an hour. Meanwhile, we deal with pears, which must be baked and flavored but still strong.

Peel a squash, grate it and cut it in half. Place the pears in a saucepan and cover with cold water, then remove the pears and set aside and in the remaining water, already measured to be enough to cover the pears well and no more, add the 100 grams of sugar for syrup and spices. Bring the syrup to a boil then add the pears and reduce the heat, letting it boil slowly, without boiling, for 10-15 minutes, until the pears soften.

Remove the pears from the syrup and drain well, then set aside to cool (the syrup can be used for something else, it is very fragrant).

For the almond cream, put the almonds in a processor (grinder of different ingredients) together with 50 grams of sugar (picture 1). It is finely ground. Mix the butter and the rest of the sugar until a fine cream is formed (picture 2). Add the almonds, brandy and vanilla extract (picture 3) and mix until incorporated. In turn, add the 2 whole eggs.

The cream obtained is refrigerated until it needs to be used.

On the work surface sprinkled with flour, spread the dough in a 4-5 mm thick sheet, which is transferred with the help of a rolling pin in the shape of a tart greased with butter. Lightly press the dough into the mold and cut the excess dough from the edges with a knife.

The tart form is refrigerated and the oven is turned on, setting it at 190 degrees Celsius.

From now on, two different approaches are valid:

1. if you want a crispy crust, it will bake in half before putting the filling, as I did

2. If, on the contrary, you want a softer crust, freeze the tart dough for 40 minutes & # 8211 1 hour, add the filling and put it directly in the oven.

I, because I wanted a crust with a biscuit consistency, placed in a well-cooled form a sheet of baking paper with weights, which in my case was about 700 grams of rice (you can use beans, chickpeas, etc. ).

I baked the tart in the preheated oven at 190 degrees (including rice) and baked it for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, I dug out the seed box from the laid pears and sliced ​​them into thin slices.

After the first 20 minutes, I took out the tart and removed the baking paper with the rice. I quickly leveled the frangipani cream in the tart and arranged the pears nicely on the surface (how beautiful it turned out for me, without a doubt that it can be even more beautiful: P).

I put the tart in the oven, reduced the temperature to 180 degrees and baked it for another 55 minutes, until the surface turned golden brown.

Allow to cool to room temperature then you can portion and eat, sprinkled or not with powdered sugar, according to everyone's wishes. The next day I felt even better.

Great appetite! Source where I was inspired (and not copied, at least I seriously reduced the amount of sugar: P): Giallo Zafferano.
