This week Michelle of Bake-en chose the Dimply Plum Cake for our TWD challenge. Since I'm not a huge fan of plums or peaches I hesitated about participating. In the end I decided I would actually make this cake and I'm so happy I did!! The cake was delicious!!
I bought some yellow plums at the market, I quartered them and used lemon zest instead of orange. I bought a basil plant 2 months ago and it's still alive, which is a miracle on it's own as I don't have green fingers.... So far all the plants I had died in recordtime: either because they drown in water or because they get dehydrated by lack of water...... Since this basil plant is still very much alive and kicking I decided to add some of it to the cake.
After 40 minutes the cake was not quite done, so I left it in the oven for another 10 minutes. The first bite was sour and than it turned sweet, a scrumptious combination!! I really don't understand where the tartness comes from.... I tasted the plums beforehand and they were sweet. After baking they tasted a bit bitter.
Dad's verdict: 8 out of 10.
P.S. More crappy pictures this week, but it's probably the last time: I just got a letter from the insurance company and they are going to reimburse me for my broken camera!! So it's shopping time!!! Does anyone have some tips for which camera I should buy???
