Double-Crust Plum Pie

1) pour milk into a glass, then add baking powder and dry yeast, mix the ingredients, and wait to activate the yeast
2) place the flour into a bowl, add over sugar, butter, and lemon zest, then mix the ingredients well by rubbing until there are no more butter traces
3) add an egg and vanilla essence, then pour milk with yeast and knead ingredients until you get a smooth sweet dough
4) cut from the dough a piece of about 1/3 of the whole
5) spread the larger dough piece into a sheet of the baking mold that you are going to use
6) place the dough sheet into the mold just like in the video
7) sprinkle 4 tbsp of semolina into the mold all over
8) cut plums into halves, remove seeds, then place the halves into the mold with the cut side downwards
9) sprinkle granulated sugar over the plum halves, then add the rest of the semolina evenly
10) stretch the smaller dough piece into a sheet and place it over the baking mold
11) cut the dough excess if necessary, merge the two dough sheets and bend the edge inwards along the mold
12) break the last egg, beat it up with the fork, and brush well the top of the pie to become golden during baking
13) make some holes into the top with the fork to allow steam to get out during baking, then place the mold in the preheated oven at 180 C/360 F
14) bake the double-crust plum pie until golden on top (30-40 minutes)
15) take the plum cake out of the oven and wait until cools to room temperature
16) take the cake out of the mold and slice it up as desired

Final Notes for the Double-Crust Plum Pie Recipe

➡️ Plum cake belongs definitely to my preferred homemade cake recipes. This is because the plum is one of the fruits that I love most, so I would eat any cake featuring it! As a result, I bake many plum cake types (some of which are shared below.)

➡️ One of the plum cakes that I make pretty often is the double-crust pie. I like it, especially because the proportion between dough and fruit fits perfectly my taste. Plus, the fresh plum turns into a kind of sweet plum jam, so the combination is simply heavenly!

➡️ There are lots of plum pie recipes and you probably already baked some of them. I recommend you try this recipe as well because the cake won’t disappoint you at all. Furthermore, the cake remains frail for at least 2-3 days, so the next day the cake is maybe even better than the day when you made it. Of course, if you don’t eat it completely, a thing that happens to me pretty often…

➡️ Making my double-crust pie is very easy, despite the homemade dough. This is simple and doesn’t require advanced skills to get the best results. As a result, there aren’t many tips to share regarding this recipe. I underline just two things: wait enough time to activate the dry yeast before proceeding, and, second, don’t forget to make a way to get the steam out during baking. Otherwise, the top of the cake will probably break and will offer you an unpleasant sight…

➡️ Finally, if you don’t like cinnamon simply skip it or replace it with cardamom to enjoy an even more exotic flavor in your homemade plum pie.
