1 tbsp baking powder
1.5 dl/ 0.3pt milk
1 orange peel
1 tsp cinnamon
8 plums
almond slivers
icing sugar

  1. Makes me remember a trip to Germany where I had a mission to find the perfect pflaumenkuchen (sp?). I found a fabulous one at a tiny brunch place in Berlin– it had a streusel topping. I may have to tweak this into a gluten-free version…
