This week's TWD recipe was Dimply Plum Cake. I have to admit I was a little concerned as to whether I would like it. I like plums by themselves, but not so much as an added recipe ingredient.
I gave it a try anyway because 1) I want to participate in making as many recipes in the Baking cookbook as possible, and 2) I wanted to see if my instinct were right, that I would not like this cake. I was wrong. It is gooood! Thinking about this now, it's hard to believe that I wouldn't like it because I love cake. Especially homemade cake.
The subtle sweetness of the cake counters the tartness of the plums nicely. I used the Italian Prune Plums as Dorie suggested, since they're currently in season. This is a quick and easy recipe. I'd like to try it with apricots. Raspberries would be good too.
This recipe was chosen by Michelle from Bake-en. You can get the recipe over at her site, or page 41 of the cookbook. Thanks for choosing a winner Michelle!
Next week: Creme Brulee. I'm excited!
