Plum season, handily tucked between strawberries in June and apples in September, is finally here. They come in so many varieties and colours, from the small, yellow greengages to the big, purple juicy Victoria plums – that we are never ever bored of them. One of the nicest things is being able to lean out of a bedroom window and pick a plum from the tree trained up the house, without even having to get up. Totally got that one sorted.
We eat them straight from the tree, but also cook them in jam, pies, in puddings or even dried and added to stews and tagines. But for something a little bit different we fall back to this almond, orange and plum cake which is just bursting with the flavours of summer. So it was an easy choice to re create this cake for #AgaInspiredRecipes challenge hosted by Rix Petroleum.
This almond, orange and plum tray bake is simple and quick to make and does not require a mixer – a very easy way to join in the Great British Bake Off fun. It is easy to add more plums or other flavourings that you might prefer. Plus any leftover cake can be simply frozen for another day.
Please head over to the Rix Petroleum website to get the recipe for this almond, orange and plum cake recipe. And enjoy every mouthful.
