Plums are my favourite fruit to cook with. I buy them almost any time I see them in the store. I love them so much that this past August I canned some in case I couldn’t find any in February. They are tart and jammy with a really beautiful colour. I have made so many different types of plum cakes (and muffins, and loaves, and crumbles, and pies) that I decided it was time to develop a plum cake recipe of my own. This cake is quick and easy to make. You can have it in the oven within 30 minutes and none of the ingredients are going to break the bank. This cake is delicious after a meal, with an afternoon cup of tea, for breakfast, or for a late night snack. In fact, I’m hard pressed to think of a time of day when you couldn’t eat this cake. I’m eating it right now.
