Poppyseed Custard Cake With Plums

, ,

This Poppyseed Custard Cake With Plums is a typical autumn cake for me, specially because of the plums.

It is made of a short pastry with a custard-poppy seed filling, topped with plums and crumble.
In my opinion, a delicious combination.

You can also make this cake with other fruits like apricots, apples or even berries.
