TWD #2: Dimply Plum Cake

Dimply Plums

Dimply Plums

The Dimply Plum recipe that was chosen for this week was quite yummy and I will probably make it again with other fruits. It is much better warm on the first day than reheated the next, so make this when you know that you will be able to share it quickly with others. It was also fun to try out some of the plums from the farmer’s market. I used cinnamon in place of the cardamom because I have a weakness for the Spice House and already had some great quality cinnamon in my spice box (yes-I have boxes–this is a subject of a future blog).

Recipe is from Baking: My Home to Yours on Page 41. This is a lovely book that I got for under 10 bucks on Half.com :)

    I see you made dilly beans. Me too – they are on my blog. We have a yearly canning session where we drink lots of wine & make beans and jam.
