Plum cake, or rather plum cake today once gluten-free. The plum season is in full swing and I can hardly keep up with the harvesting. We have a lot of plum trees in the garden and even with the greatest effort I can not get everything from the tree. However, I have already discarded perfectionism, because what I can not harvest, the insects are happy about it. There hasn’t been a pure gluten-free cake on the blog for a while, and today it’s finally back. Are you ready? Then let’s get started together.
Vegan gluten free plum cake
The base of our cake today is a shortbread. The consists of gluten-free flour mix, oat flour, vegan margarine, raw cane sugar and ice cold water. Once everything is ready , the dough goes into the refrigerator until the crumble and plums are prepared.
Then the shortcrust pastry is topped with the delicious, juicy plums and then? All that’s missing are the crumbles made from gluten-free flour mix, margarine, raw cane sugar, bourbon vanilla and cinnamon. Once everything has found its place, then it’s off to the oven.
TIP: I like to make my own gluten-free flour blend because the ready-made blends are too starchy for me. Click here to get to my special blend.
How healthy are actually plums?
Plums (damsons) are delicious, healthy and rich in:
- Zinc, iron, potassium, calcium and magnesium
- Provitamin A, B vitamins, vitamin C and E
- Low calorie with 48kcal/100g
- Cellulose and pectin (digestive)
I like to serve the cake while it’s still lukewarm with a dollop of cream and some extra cinnamon. Add to that a delicious hot drink and my day is made. If you are looking for a different fruitcake today, I have the following suggestions for you:
- Juicy currant cake
- Blackberry chocolate cake
- Blueberry pie
- Sponge cake with peaches
- Vegan plum doughnut (not gluten-free)
- Apple hazelnut cake
