This week my fruit/vegetable co-op was super heavy with plums. As in a few pounds. That’s a lot of plums! And while I like eating them as is, it’s hard to get through them all before they start going too soft. And I hate to waste good fruit! Of course, I could make prunes. Or plum jam.
But then again, there’s cake. And when given the opportunity, I always choose CAKE.
(this might be a problem)
I looked around for a plum kuchen recipe and found one that looked good from Cooking Light – then I made it even healthier.
Yes. I know. It’s still a cake. But this one is made with whole wheat flour, coconut sugar and less butter than the original. It is dense and absolutely perfect with a hot cup of coffee.
It’s an afternoon cake for ladies who visit. Or men who visit. I don’t judge.
You could make this with different colored plums for a pretty (and pretty delicious) visual. I bet apricots would be awesome too!
With that, I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes:
“A party without a cake is just a meeting.” Julia Child
