Plum Cake

I found this very seasonal recipe this morning, and thought I would share it with you. As there were still lots of plums in the orchard yesterday, and I picked a whole bag with the help of Moss. I thought this made a change from jams & chutneys.

I adapted it and made one with apricots, which worked really well. We ate some warm cake tonight with vanilla ice cream! It's simple to make and tastes lovely. I added half dried cranberries & half currants to the plum one.

Hi Amanda,
That sounds like a nice cake!

We have bookmarked this site for reference at a later date.

We didn't make it to the Annual Show, but will catch up soon I hope.

I've just added a photo. Unfortunately not a picture of the whole cake as we have eaten most of it! I also made one with fresh apricots, and that worked well too.
