Well I have used my fresh ones to make Plum Cake (recipe follows) but sadly this will be the end of my plum posts for a while as all of my frozen ones have been destroyed when our chest freezer broke! They sadly, along with everything else ended up a big pile of semi-frozen mess that had to be thrown away.16.67 degrees Celsius">238.89 degrees Celsius">462">Anyway enough of my drama’s here is the Plum Cake recipe that to be honest I probably wouldn’t make again as didn’t like the cake texture, found it to be a cross between a sponge and a cake in texture. It’s an slight adaption from the Martha Stuart’s Lemon Plum Cake recipe.
