This gluten free plum cake recipe is gorgeous. It’s a luscious showstopper at the party table.
Better still it’s an easy to make gluten free plum cake recipe.
A gluten free plum cake recipe so good we made it twice in one week
I have made this gluten free plum cake recipe twice now. We lingered over the juicy plum slices for puddings during the week. Then I made a slightly smaller version for a family get together at which one person was coeliac.
The gluten free plum cake recipe is from Hannah Miles’ The Gluten Free Baker. The original plum cake recipe comes out very large at 11 inches wide using a rather decadent and costly volume of ground almonds. Hence the second time I made the gluten free plum cake recipe in an 8 inch tin to save money and waste. 11 inches is a very large cake indeed unless you’re feeding twenty people the same thing.
This gluten free plum cake recipe bakes slow and low at gas mark 3, it takes over an hour and half to cook but it’s well worth the wait.
This gluten free plum cake was the front cover shot for Hannah’s book but do you know what, I’m going to blow my own trumpet here and say I think mine actually looks even better.
I love how the light shines through the plums like a stained glass window. This gluten free plum cake recipe was a joy to make and eat.
I hope you get chance to try it for yourself!
