I LOVE this cake and was so happy to get a piece of Germany in the USA. I lived in Germany for 10yrs and loved this dessert. We enjoy it slightly warmed with whipped cream or the Vanilla cream sauce (this is the secret to this cake).
I can say this is TRULY the same recipe I'm used to from the Stuttgart region.
You will not be disappointed. It may not be perfect but what cake being shipped through the mail is (rhetorical). My 4 is only because of this reason but the taste itself is definitely a 5-star!

This is my "go to" dessert when I have dinner guests. I warm it up in the oven and serve it with whipped cream, topped with fresh lemon zest. My guests ohhh and ahhh and praise my baking skills. LOL. When they ask me for the recipe, I give them the link to this product on GermanDeli's website. I've made it from scratch and it's quite labor intensive. This version is every bit as yummy as my home-made version without all the work. Two thumbs up!
My mother used to make this - but we called it "Zwetschgendatschi" so I gave it a try. I am so ashamed to say that I ate the whole thing in a weekend...I just could not stop till it was gone! :-)
Someone said it was too moist, but that is the nature of any cake with fruit to be more moist! This and Mohnkuchen are my two favorite cakes from Germany [because der Mohn must be ground to release the full flavor and not just throw it in the cake like here in US]. Also LOVE Bienenstich but have not bought German Deli's version yet. LOVE all German cakes, Kreppel and baked goods, etc they taste just right and not overly sweet. Also highly recommend the German Brot & Brötchen, wonderful!!!
Excellent product & wonderful taste!!!!! Will definetly purchase again.
Generally I don't eat desert. I just don't care for sweets. This one is just right for me. Not too sweet. Loved it. Yes, shipping does take away a little from this great cake, but if you put it in the oven for few minutes, you get an outstanding desert. Thank you German Deli!
The zwetschgenkuchen was to die for! It reminded me of home from the first bite to the last, darn and ate it way too fast. LOLI'll definetely order it again when it goes on sale and my budget works out. YUMMY!!! Nothing soggy about it, trick: don't open the single pack until you're ready to eat it and keep them in the fridge. Allmaecht des woar so guuat.....;)
I had ordered this cake sort of as a test to see if the packaged baked products where as good as there description, and as reviewed. This unfortunately was not. It arrived nicely packaged, however, the contents were soggy, somewhat mushy. Will not order again. Don't really understand all of the positive reviews. Ist halt leider Geschmacksache...
This plum cake is incredible. I almost overlooked it due to the cost but I took a chance and....wow...it was amazing! I will definately order again.
Tastes exactly like the plum cake I used to eat when I lived in Germany. My husband treats me to this wonderful cake several times a year. I always look so forward to receiving my shipments! Love it, love it, love it!!
My cake was on my doorstep when I got home. It was so good. I froze the other 5 pieces. To save me from eating them too fast! Thank-you!! I especially love the individual packages. As, I'm doing weight watchers...
The best cake I have in november in Texas since I left Germany Thank you
Please keep this Pflaumenkuchen! It is so delicious!
WOW!!! I just came back to earth! This is the BEST tasting Plum cake and worth every penny!!!! Please keep this in stock and you will have a Happy customer for life!!!! Thank you German Deli!
Fantastic. I hope you have it on hand year round so I can continue getting it. Well worth the price. Just like my mother used to make.
