Fluffy plummy cake

Hi everyone! ?

It’s still Sunday, I hope you guys had a lovely weekend, I most certainly have. Although I felt it uncompleted and then it hit me, I need something sweet, something nice to munch on although I couldn’t decide what to bake. Then I looked up on the fruit shelf and I realised I got plums. My lovely neighbour gave them to me, few days ago, and they were still sitting on the shelf without any purpose what so ever. That’s not true actually… I was going to make crumble from them, but I have had no inspiration to doing that, because it’s only me who adores crumble and I didn’t want to be selfish.

I used to bake a lot before my gluten-free era, we had some sort of cake in almost every weekend. I lost my interest in these things, as I try to cook quick foods without making a mess and we all know what baking means. Baking=mess. Is it true or not? Yes, it is don’t deny it. But I bake something for once in a millennium of course. This time I choose this fluffy plummy cake, it’s cheap, it’s quick and it’s not too sweet. That’s right people, I can’t stand sweets or chocolate. I’d rather eat something salty, or homemade cake than those things. Okay, I am not gonna lie, sometimes I consume chocolate, but these occasions are rather rare and I am not proud of it but I’m only human. ?

Back to the plummy miracle of mine though, it’s worth to make it if you have not much time, or you just simply hate making a mess like me. You don’t need too many things, and quite honest you don’t even need a scale either. The only measuring tool is a 300 ml mug. So when I referring 1 mug in the recipe, you will know which mug I talking about, right? The mug. The only mug which holds in the universe. I am glad we cleared that ?

The recipe:

2 mugs of Gluten-free self raising flour

1 mug of nature yogurt

1 mug of granulated sugar

1/2 mug of oil

2 eggs


cinnamon, sugar


First, wash and slice up the plums and set them aside until you need them.

Get a bowl and crack your eggs in it, then add the sugar and beat them with your hand mixer until the consistency is similar like the fresh cream.

Now, add the nature yoghurt and oil and mix them well with your mixer, and then add the flour in it gradually and make a smooth batter.

Put baking paper in a baking tray and pour your batter in it.

Place the plums onto the top of the batter and sprinkle generously ( but not too much) with cinnamon and sugar.

Place the baking tray in the preheated oven 170 Celsius with fan and bake the thing for about 40-45 minutes, or until needle test. Sprinkle more cinnamon and sugar on it 5 minutes before the baking time is up.

That’s it, enjoy this plumy miracle 🙂
