Plum Cake

This plum cake ("Zwetschgenkuchen") disappeared so quickly, I didn't remember to take a photo of the whole cake. However, here is me making the dough. Yes, we have a machine that could do it, but I prefer making the dough by hand. It's more fun for the few times I'm making cake.

While prepping the cake, I watched a neat documentary from 1934 about the construction of the electrified North-South-route of the Berlin S-Bahn, which was completed in 1939. Quite a bit of Civil Engineering details, and of course in German. However, there are many scenes showing the working conditions, tools, and machines used for this rather large untertaking more than 80 years ago. An impressive reminder how much technology has advanced in this very short time.
