PLUM CAKE

September 22, 2014

Another yummy recipe made with the plums from my very own plum tree! This recipe works with all kinds of fruit – peaches, apricots, … – but plums are the best. Cinnamon and clove are typical plum spices, so if you go for a different fruit you might want to change up the spices.
