Simple plum cake

A simple cake with plums made with Greek yoghurt, eggs, flour and powdered sugar. This cake is fluffy, light and moist, perfect for dessert. Plum season is in full swing, so I had to use them to bake something sweet. Cakes with plums, as well as all cakes with fruit, are very popular in my home. I make both gluten-free cakes, for which I use these fruits, and cakes made with wheat flour, which is known to contain gluten. On the blog, you will find several recipes for cakes with plums, including shortcrust pastry, sponge cake and gluten-free cake.

This delicious plum cake is very easy to prepare. First, I beat the eggs with sugar and salt in a bowl, then add the liquid ingredients, followed by the dry ingredients, orange zest and juice. Thanks to the addition of orange zest and juice, this cake has a fantastic smell, and the citrus aftertaste is also slightly noticeable. After that, I put the plums cut into pieces on top of the cake batter, but I do not press them into it, because during baking they will fall down a bit. I bake the yoghurt cake with plums in a rectangular baking tin for about 40 minutes, then cool it down and sprinkle with powdered sugar. I encourage you to try the following recipe for a simple cake with plums and I wish you happy baking.

How to make simple cake with plums.

Put eggs, powdered sugar and salt in a bowl. Beat for 5-6 minutes or until the mass becomes fluffy. Then, while whisking all the time, pour in the oil, Greek yoghurt, then add the sifted flour mixed with baking powder and baking soda, orange zest and juice. Quickly combine all ingredients.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and pour the yoghurt cake batter into it. Place the plum slices on top of the cake batter, with the skin side down, leaving a small space between each plum slice.
