with caramel

White sugar caramel is better than brown sugar. And don't keep it on the fire for too long - it should boil down twice, but remain golden-orange in color. Such a pie

Thanks for the recipe to Irina, author of the blog "Notes on Kitchen Curtains".

Legend has it that every year since 1983, The New York Times has published a recipe for plum pie, yielding to the pleas of American housewives. In 1995, the editors announced the last publication of the recipe, suggesting it as an ultimatum to cut it out, laminate it and hang it on the refrigerator :-)

The pie is incredibly easy to make and very tasty!

chicken eggs

2 pcs.
1 cup

baking powder

1 pinch
15 pcs.

brown sugar

2 tbsp. l.

ground cinnamon

Mix flour with baking powder and sift into the butter-egg mixture. Mix until a homogeneous thick mass.

Line the bottom of a springform pan (mine is 22 cm in diameter) with parchment paper. Grease the mold with a little butter. Cut plums into halves. Mix brown sugar with cinnamon. Put the dough on the bottom of the form, smooth it out. From above, lightly drown the plums in the dough with the cut up. The number of plums depends on their size. It took me 13 pieces. Sprinkle the plums with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Send the form to the oven preheated to 180C for 40-50 minutes.

The cake is ready! P.S. I took the pie to work. It seems to be a simple recipe, but the cake is so delicious that I had to hand out the recipe all day :-)
