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……
Very Simple, 4 steps is all it takes ….. Here are the ingredients ~
1 1/3 C Walnuts, 1/3 C + 1 T Sugar, 1/4 C Whole wheat pastry flour,
1/2 t Baking Powder, 1/2 t Cinnamon, 1/2 C Coconut butter, 3 Eggs, 2 T Honey & 12 – 14 plums
Put all the dry ingredients together in a food processor a dry grinder and pulse until well blended together
Whisk the eggs, butter & honey together until well mixed, then add in the dry ingredients & blend well.. All I used was a wire whisk…
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
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!!!
