“A quick and simple moist, dense cake with the flavour of plums and brown sugar. Feel free to use any fruit or berries you like instead of the plums. I used half whole wheat and half all purpose flour when I made this and also used light cream cheese and fat free yogurt. Cup measurements are estimates as I normally use grams.”
1 9inch cake
