Plum Cake

I am the lucky recipient of a bag of fresh, summer plums from my neighbors Steph & Conor!  I needed some motivation, so I went searching for an easy recipe.  This one is hands down the easiest I found out there!!  It’s from The Vegan Word and it’s delicious.  I made only a couple small changes that I’m using below which includes the addition of some almond milk, and less plums.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cut the plums into quarters and remove the pits. Grease an 8 inch round (or in my case, square) cake pan.  I sprayed mine with coconut oil spray.

In a large mixing bowl, add the 1 cup of sugar and the vegan butter. Combine with a hand mixer.

Pour the batter into the pan and flatten the surface.  Add the plums to the batter skin side up.

Next, sprinkle the plums with the lemon juice (so the sugar & cinnamon will stick to them) then sprinkle the 2 TBS of sugar and the cinnamon on top of the cake.
