Plum Cake

Plum Cake
I just made this cake for my hubby's birthday. I was inspired by a recipe posted by a blog called a "Bowl of Mush" - Amelie's Plum Cake recipe.

Happy Birthday Honey! 

Plum Cake


4 red plums, quartered
3/4 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup cake flour
2 eggs, 1 egg white
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp orange zest
pinch nutmeg
2 Tbsp milk (I used almond milk)

Mix flours, baking powder, salt and nutmeg in bowl.
In mixing bowl, beat butter and add sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and add eggs, orange zest, vanilla and milk. Mix until combined and smooth. Spray 8x8 pan or round cake pan. Spread batter in pan and arrange plum quarters on top and push in slightly. Sprinkle plums with 1 Tbsp sugar. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 - 40 min until cake tester/toothpick comes out clean.  Cool on rack for at least 30 min. I recommend serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
