Well, I was really popular today at work, thanks to Shaheen at Allotment to Kitchen's yummy plum cake recipe.
The plums into the allotment have all been ripening over the past week or so. It's my first year of getting plums so is quite exciting. I bought the tree from QD for about £6 about 3 years ago. It's tap root had been cut off to fit in the pot so I didn't expect that much from it but lo and behold it's been worth the wait. It's a variety called opal.
So looking for plum recipes I had a search of Shaheen's blog and this one caught my eye. Jan helped make it and we were also making plum chutney at the same time.
The cake didn't last very long, my hungry colleagues devoured it in few minutes and people were rushing from all over the office to get a bit!
This recipe is definitely a keeper!
