how to cook Easy Upside Down Plum Cake?


сливовый пирог со сметаной

To start, preheat your oven to 175°C (350⁰F). In a medium bowl, combine flour and ground nuts, then add baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Give it a good stir.

TIPS: Feel free to choose your favorite nuts or peanuts, ensuring they are finely ground. You can grind the nuts in a coffee grinder or kitchen chopper. Alternatively, nut flour like almond flour can be used as a substitute for ground nuts.

Next, take a large bowl and place the softened butter in it. Use a mixer at medium speed to beat the butter until it becomes creamy. Then, add sugar and vanilla sugar to the bowl and continue beating until everything is well combined.

TIPS: If your butter is too hard, a few seconds in the microwave can soften it up and make it easier to whip.

TIPS: Instead of using butter, you can opt for good quality margarine. It works just as well! But keep in mind that margarine contains salt. So, you might want to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe. Just a little heads up!

TIPS: Want to make the lemon flavor in the cake even better? Just grind some sugar with freshly grated lemon zest. Trust me, it’s a game-changer!
