  1. I love your videos. You don’t waste time with any long bla,bla,bla introductions. You have all the ingredients measured out and you show all the necessary details. I make the same cake and use what ever fruit or berries are in season. But I double the recipe to cover a 10″ x 15″ baking pan, so that I can share the cake with my daughter’s busy family. The other minor difference is that I separate the egg yolks and whip the egg whites in a separate bowl, before folding them into the batter. I also add a bit of salt to the flour. That’s how my mother taught me to do it. By the way, my daughter used the Czech cookie cutters at Easter and she loves them. And she loves your cookbook that I bought for her as a gift for Mother’s Day. Hope you’re having a great day.

    1. Thank you Jane, your cake sounds amazing! 🙂 I am happy to hear your daughter enjoys my book and cutters. 🙂 Wishing you Merry Christmas!

  2. So happy to see a new video. Congratulations on your rental.

    1. Thank you Paula 🙂

  3. While I like plums the best, I would like to try this with other fruit like blackberries. Should I change anything with the recipe or baking? Thanks!

    1. No need to change anything

  4. Excellent and effortless recipe! Oh thank you!! I got a round of applause after serving this at a party with many people from different countries: Spain, Argentina, Russia, Ukraine, and the United States. Just a fabulous recipe!! You are the best!! Thank you for sharing with us! I encourage everyone to try it! On my fourth time making it, to my horror, all of my plums were spoiled! Just rotten! So I put in 500g of blueberries instead, also tasty, but the plums are of course better. Moral of the story: prepare the plums first, not when you have the batter already in the pan with the oven already hot! Thank you again Kristina!! I love these recipe from my grandfather’s homeland!

    1. Thank you Annie, I am happy to hear it was enjoyed. 🙂 Thank you for nice words. Made me smile. 🙂

  5. This looks JUST like my Bohemian Grandmother’s coffee cake. She would make one tray with plums and one tray with peaches. As a kid I always loved it, especially fact that it was not overly sweet. Thank you for bringing back the memories, I haven’t made her coffee cake is many years.

    1. I hope it bring wonderful memories. 🙂

  6. Veľa vašich receptou dom vyskúšala a všetky sa vynikajúco podarili hlavne vďaka videám! Ja nám k Vám jednu prosbu, bolo by možné urobiť video na klasickú orechové tortu? Z detstva sa pamätám, babka mi ju často piekla. Ďakujem.

    1. Dekuji za hezky koment. 🙂 Vim presne jakou. Je vyborna! Do budoucna bych ji rada udelala. 🙂
