DSC_0101And don’t you roll your eyes at me for posting two recipes in a row that call for plum. It’s not my fault that our plum tree, which was planted only four years ago, has enough plums for the whole neighborhood to enjoy and then some more. I’ve been cooking with plum for a few weeks now and there are still a few left in my fridge.

Plum Coffee Cake (8)I have tried making a few different cakes with plums inside, but this one has proven to be the absolute best. I got the recipe from this lovely lady on Instagram and turned it into a gluten-free version. So, yeah, by all means, if you could care less about gluten (or if you don’t even know what gluten is), make it with regular all-purpose flour and  enjoy it the way the original creator intended it to be.

      Yes, a cup = 250 ml. All purpose flour is just a regular all use flour. It’s just we also have cake flour which is more fine, but it is not necessary in this recipe. Hope I answered your question! 🙂
