One of my great weaknesses is German food. I just love it. There is this tiny German restaurant I would go to in my hometown and the super nice German lady who owned it would make this amazing homemade plum cake. I could get very fat eating that so I never learned the recipe. 🤣
Now that's a sentence you don't read too often😂
I assume you mean https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zwetschgenkuchen? I'm probably being terribly German right now but I have to point out that they are not just plums but "Zwetschgen", which are firmer and more tart than sweet. That's why you need to have a sugar bowl on the table when you serve Zwetschgenkuchen, so everyone can adjust sweetness levels to taste. Whipped cream is also not a bad idea.
But, yeah, with certain foods it's safest really *not* to know how to make them.
Btw tonight it's Mexican Chicken Soup!
