Preparation of sweet plumcake with cornmeal

  1. First, melt the butter in a saucepan in a bain-marie then turn off the heat and let it cool. Shell the eggs in a bowl, add the sugar and beat them to obtain a light and frothy mixture .
  2. Add the melted butter and milk, always continuing to mix.
  3. At this point, add the baking powder and flour and after mixing everything, pour the dough into a buttered and floured mould.
  4. Level well and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for 50/60 minutes.
  5. Before removing from the oven, check the cooking by doing the classic toothpick test, if it comes out dry the plumcake is ready to be taken out of the oven.
  6. Let cool completely before removing the mold and cutting into slices.

The dessert prepared following this recipe can be kept under a glass bell for 3-4 days .

For an even more delicious version, we recommend the plumcake with cornmeal and chocolate chips: to prepare it, just add a couple of tablespoons of chocolate chips to the dough !

Alternatively, you can try the yogurt and blueberry plumcake .


We recommend keeping the cornmeal dessert in a cool, dry place for a maximum of 2 days , preferably under a special container for desserts.
