I called it that because it's a recipe from my grandmother with ammonia sheets like she did in her time. Although I don't like the smell of ammonia, I tried the recipe and it came out very good and fluffy and the smell of ammonia disappears once the cake has cooled. .

  • for ammonia sheets:
  • 250 gr flour,
  • 50 g butter or margarine,
  • 50 gr powdered sugar,
  • 1 whole egg,
  • 2 tablespoons warm milk in which one teaspoon of ammonia dissolves,
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream,
  • for filling:
  • sweet apples,
  • cinnamon,
  • brown sugar and baked and ground walnuts (here everyone puts what amount they want, I used about a deep plate of each)

Servings: 8

Preparation time: less than 90 minutes


Knead the leaf ingredients and make two sheets that are baked on the bottom of a rectangular tray over low heat. Fill the sheets with this composition and powder on top with powdered sugar. If you like it and you have time, you can make small burnt sugar ornaments on top.

How to prepare fruits for the plum and walnut cake?

I prepared the plums: I washed them and peeled them. I caught some fine, fragrant, sweet and ripe plums.

I took out the seeds and then cut them into quarters.

Now comes the trick: I sprinkled the plums with sugar and ground cinnamon and mixed them lightly.

Then I left the bowl on the table for 30 minutes, until the dough leavened. During this time, the plums leave a lot of juice, a juice that we don't really need in the first phase of baking the plum and walnut cake. After this time we strained the plums through a sieve and carefully collected all the syrup spilled from them & # 8211 we need it later!

How to assemble the plum and walnut cake?

I heated the oven to 200 C with ventilation (high stage for gas).

I laid a 30 x 25 cm tray with baking paper (cut larger so as to line the side walls). I turned the leavened dough directly into it and flattened it with my palms, from close to close. It goes very easy! I also formed some side edges of 1-2 cm so that the plum juice does not flow under the dough.

I sprinkled 1/2 of the chopped walnut (or larger ground) mixed with breadcrumbs over the dough. This layer will absorb more of the juice left by the plums during ripening.

Then I arranged the drained plums nicely, in rows.

I sprinkled the rest of the walnuts on top. If the plums are very sour, you can now add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar.

→ Beat the eggs with the sugar for a few minutes. Add vanilla sugar. Add the oil, spoon after spoon in turn, baking powder and flour. Stir with a spoon, then by hand. A dough comes out like a hard plasticine. Spread the dough in the pan with the palm of your hand. The tray should be lightly greased with butter.

→ Mix half of the walnut with a tablespoon of breadcrumbs. Add, only if the fruit is sour, a tablespoon of powdered sugar. Put the raisins and fruit in the walnut and breadcrumbs mixture and mix gently. Put the fruit on top of the dough and bake everything for 20 minutes, over low heat, in a well-heated oven.

→ Mix the remaining walnuts with the biscuit breadcrumbs. Sprinkle the mixture over the fruit and bake the tray again for another 15-20 minutes, still on low heat.
