  • Start to knead until you get a firm, moist dough.
  • Cut the dough in half and place the two halves inside plumcake molds to ensure they’ll retain their shape.
  • Bring the vegetable broth to a boil and proceed to pour it over the dough in the mold, let the ham cook for about 2 hours.
  • At this point, we can get the ham out of our mold, and we can place it over an oven dish, covered with baking paper. Carve some tiny holes in it using a toothpick.
  • Now we can brush the ham with a mixture of pineapple juice, mustard and sugar, to ensure to give our ham plenty of taste, and cook it in the preheated oven at 356°F for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Allow the ham to cool down, then slice it and serve it.
