Plum Rule Breaker Cake


  • 5 cups flour sifted
  • 5 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 ounce fresh yeast at room temperature
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup whole milk at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 8-10 plums pitted and chopped


  1. In a large mixing bowl add in the sifted flour and make a small well in the middle.
  2. In a small bowl add in the eggs and gently whisk them together. Just enough to break up the yolks and mix them in with the whites.
  3. Pour the yolks into the well of your flower.
  4. Over the eggs pour in the sugar and crumble the fresh yeast over that.
  5. Pour in the oil followed by the milk. DO NOT MIX! Just cover with a clean kitchen towel and set aside for 45 minutes to 1 hour in a warm place to rise. If you are nervous that the dough will touch your towel then place a wooden spoon over the top of the mixing bowl and place the towel over it.
  6. After the dough has become frothy take your wooden spoon and mix everything together until everything is incorporated. The dough will be quite sticky so do not panic.
  7. Pour the mixture into your prepared rectangular cake pan (13.4″ x 9.4″) which you have prepped with some parchment paper.
  8. Using a spatula even the mixture out. It may appear to tough to work with but trust me when I tell you the outcome is unbelievable.
  9. Top with chopped plums (or any other fruit you’d like) and using your hand gently pat them into the batter.
  10. Place cake in a COLD oven. Turn the heat to 350 degrees F and let preheat. Bake 40-45 mintues or until fully cooked through.
  11. Let cool completely and ENJOY!
