About this recipe:This is a German custard cake with plums that I've been making for years. It's delicious served warm, but cooled to room temperature will taste just as good. Keep leftovers in the fridge, if you have any.

Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. In a large bowl, mix flour, 1 tablespoon caster sugar and baking powder in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in 2 tablespoons cream and 1 egg. Press in bottom of an ungreased 22cm square baking dish or cake tin; arrange plums over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. While cake is baking, in a bowl, combine 120ml cream, 100g caster sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1 egg. Beat well and pour mixture over plums; bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until custard is set. Serve warm or cool.
