Plum Vanilla Cake with Crumble

, ,

I baked this cake for a very dear friend for her birthday, nothing extravagant, just this fruity, tasty, Plum Vanilla Cake with Crumble.

I find that this cake tastes especially good in the plum season.

Only a dough for the base, and the crumble on top, nothing fancy. The vanilla custard inside adds more freshness and boosts the fruity plum taste.

  2. Pour the custard on top and spread evenly.

  3. Spread the plum filling on top.

  4. Finally, spread the crumble over the cake with your fingers. (You can decide the size of the crumble by kneading it in your hand).
