  • ½ cup ice water
  • 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 and ¾ cups + 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (very cold and diced)

  • 6 small plums (pitted and sliced)
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ¾ cup + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup tapioca
  • 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • ½ cup of good quality fruit jam
  • 1 large egg



  • Mix water and apple cider vinegar in a bowl. Refrigerate until you need the mixture.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar. Add cubes of cold butter and stir.
  • Slowly add the cold water with the vinegar and mix until a wet dough forms.
  • Carefully transfer the dough onto a lightly floured roll, form it into a ball and wrap it in cling film. Let rest for 1 hour.
  • 10 minutes before you roll the dough, take it out of the fridge. If you worked with it earlier, it might crack.
  • Roll the dough to the sides and place it in the baking dish. Also stick it on the sides of the mold and pierce the bottom with a fork.


  • Wash the fruit and put it in a large bowl, along with the chopped plums. Mix with half a cup of sugar and lemon juice.
  • Put this mixture in a colander and place it on a bowl. Let it stand for 3 hours – the juice will start to release. You can gently stir the fruit from time to time.
  • Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  • Remove the strainer with the fruit and pour the fruit juice that has flowed into the pan. Pour the fruit into a bowl and set aside.
  • Use a grinder to grind the tapioca into a powder. Pour the tapioca, remaining sugar, cornstarch, salt, honey and lemon zest into the pan with the fruit juice. Whisk vigorously to combine all ingredients.
  • Place the pan on the stove and turn it on to medium heat.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes, until the mixture begins to thicken. Then remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  • Add the fruit to the pan and mix gently.
  • Cut the dough in the mold into thin strips and spread the jam on the bottom.
  • Pour the fruit mixture over the dough and cover it with strips from the sides – first in one direction and then in the other so that they cross and close the cake on the surface.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the eggs with 1 tablespoon cold water. Brush the surface of the cake with this egg mixture and sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar.
  • Place in the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes. After this time, reduce the temperature to 190°C and bake for another 30-40 minutes.
  • Allow cake to cool completely on a cooling rack before serving – about 4 to 6 hours.
