The colors of the plum in the cake are just fantastic. I have a few plums that are on the verge of overripeness, so perhaps they too are destined for cake.
And can I suggest oatmeal cookies for some of the oatmeal? A batch would make quick work of a lot of oatmeal.


Hi Johanna, that plum cake looks beautiful! I think it is unfortunate for me that you couldn't send more of what was in your cupboard ;)

We've been enjoying your wonderful treats every day, and I finally managed to get my post up. Thanks again for such a fantastic package!


What a rich and delicious-looking cake!



I read your blog every day searching for new recipes - thank you! Here in Germany I have a treefull of 'Zwetschen' - are these the same as damsons? Last week I made a plum cake with a new base - using oatmeal and ground almonds with the flour - thought I was really inventive till I read your blog! I shall try your version tomorrow!


Hi Dale, yes, zwetschgen are damsons in english ... unfortunately, they are almost impossible to find around london! i must buy some while i am in austria!

Why is orange juice in the ingredients and not in the recipe?
