If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much space
Here is my recipe:
Placek (Plum Cake)
3 Cups flour
2 sticks butter
1 Cup sugar
5 eggs yolks (save whites for 2nd step)
1 Tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Cocoa
Italian plums (enough to cover a 13x9 inch pan) about 2 lbs halved & pitted
Mix (knead) and divide into 3 equal parts
1st add cocoa (about 1 tsp) to one of the 3 parts you just divided. Leave in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours. Take one ball and pat into pan add the fruit (Italian plums divided into two is best)Just lay them side by side till whole pan is covered (I used a 13x9 in pan) You may also use sliced apples as the plumes are usually in season in the fall. Next take 2nd ball and crumble on top of the plumes. Beat 5 egg whites, stiff, add 1/2 Cup sugar. Pour over the fruit.
Take 3rd ball (cocoa) and crumble last evenly over the mixture. Bake at 350 for about 25 to 30 minutes.
This was served to me when I was visiting Poland and my cousin gave me her recipe.
