If you are in Berlin and like kitchen tools there is an amazing shop I found out last week. I spent half an hour in Kochtail and went out with a set of measuring cups and spoons and a bento box. Ok, the bento box is not properly a kitchen tool, but it was yellow and I liked it!
With my new toys I prepared this plum cake. The texture and the flavor of this batter is simply perfect and you can use whatever you want, every kind of fruits, dried fruits and spices.


For the batter
2 cups flour plus 2 tbsp for the peaches
¾ cup brown sugar
1 ¼ tbsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 cup soy milk
1/8 cup canola oil
2 peaches
40 gr dark chocolate minced

For the crumble
¼ cup flour
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp soy butter
1 tbsp pine nuts

Preheat the oven to 180°.

In a bowl stir together flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl whisk soy milk and canola oil. Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth.
Dice two peaches and toss them carefully with two tablespoon of flour. Add peaches and minced dark chocolate to the batter and gently combine.

Prepare the crumble mixing flour, brown sugar and butter with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly.

Spread the batter evenly into a greased tin and sprinkle crumble and pine nuts on the top of the plum cake. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove the tin from the oven and allow to cool completely to room temperature.
