Plum Walnut cake

This lovely tree in my backyard is my inspiration for making this cake. I have been enjoying the sweet, juicy plums along with the squirrels…. but then there are so many more, so I tweaked a recipe of Fig Almond cake ( from NY times) & made it my own……

Step 1

Put all the dry ingredients together in a food processor a dry grinder and pulse until well blended together


Step 2

Whisk the eggs, butter & honey together until well mixed, then add in the dry ingredients & blend well.. All I used was a wire whisk…


Step 3

Put the batter on a greased pie plate, top it off with sliced plums on top with a drizzle of 1 -2 Tbsp sugar on top

Step 4

Bake at 350 degree F for 30 – 40 minutes until done in the middle & Voila!

And the flavor… a nice mix of sweet, tangy and juicy… my boys loved it!!!
