About this Recipe

If you want to use this plum-cake for a pleasant outdoor picnic, you can avoid preparing the hard-boiled egg, but bring the mayonnaise in a separate container. When you cut the slices of plum cake, place a mayonnaise dollop on each one.

On the contrary, if you want to use the plum-cake for an Easter buffet, prepare 4 boiled eggs, open them in half, take the yolk firm and mix it with a little white wine mayonnaise and some chopped chives. Stuff the half firm egg whites with the mixture and bring them to the table together with the plum-cake and mayonnaise..

For the mayonnaise, place the eggs with a pinch of salt, mustard and a tablespoon of lemon juice in a tall container where you can insert an immersion blender.

Pour the flour into a bowl, add 2 egg yolks, pea puree, milk, salt (a little) and pepper and stir. Complete with the cheeses and the yeast. Whisk the egg whites to thick snow and add them to the two mix.

Pour the compound into a 28 cm long plum cake mold lined with baking paper and bake at 180 ° for 50 minutes. shell the boiled egg and cut it in half. Gently take the yolk firmly and crumble it or pass it through a sieve to get lots of crumbs (the egg mimosa).
