Plum Yogurt Torte with Cinnamon
Crunchy sesame seeds provide an extra portion of calcium and magnesium in this light sponge cake. The plums are said to help with metabolic diseases, liver and gall bladder ailments.
You can also make this cake with another type of plum, for example mirabelle plums. If you want to do without the Christmassy aroma in the compote, simply leave out the appropriate spices.
