Bake plum crumble cake with quark oil dough: Here's how

  • For the dough, mix the quark, milk and oil with the sugar and lemon zest in a bowl.

    Mix the flour with the baking powder and sift them over.

    Process everything with the dough hook of the hand mixer to a smooth dough.

  • Grease the baking pan.

    Preheat the oven to 200°C top/bottom heat or 180°C fan.

  • On a floured work surface, roll out the dough slightly larger than the tin and line it, leaving a 2-centimetre border all the way around.

  • Wash, halve and stone the plums and cover the pastry base tightly with them.

  • For the crumbles, knead the flour, cinnamon, sugar, butter and milk in a bowl with your fingers to form crumbs.

    Distribute the sprinkles evenly over the plums.

  • Bake the plum crumble cake in the hot oven on the middle shelf for 35-40 minutes.

    Then leave to cool briefly in the mold.

    Then carefully lift the cake onto a wire rack and let cool completely.
