It’s been a while since I last posted on my blog and with the wintry days upon us here in the deep south, warm comfort food is becoming a hot favourite on our menu. Here is an amazeballs gf cake recipe that I’ve amended to include yummy tinned plums. You could use any preserved fruit – the juicy nature of preserved fruit keeps this cake moist and delectable with a lovely crumb. Enjoy!
yummy plum cake
2 cups gf flour mix
1 tsp gf baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk (df substitutes work fine here – I used oat milk)
1 Tbsp vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (olive oil gives this cake a great depth)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla
6 large preserved plums (or any preserved whole fruit)
reserve 1 cup syrup from fruit
1. Preheat oven to 180 degress C. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
2. Add vinegar to the milk and stir. Mix in the oil, sugar and vanilla.
3. Gently fold together the wet and dry ingredients.
4. Grease a 30cm x 20cm baking dish and pour in cake batter.
5. Halve plums and remove stones. Place evenly across cake batter.
6. Bake in preheated oven for around 45 – 47 minutes or until a cake skewer comes out clean.
7. Take reserve syrup and reduce down until thick and sauce-like.
This is best served warm dusted with a little icing sugar and drizzled with the reduced plum syrup. Yummo!
