We had a party this week. I’ve gotta say, I’m not the best at birthdays. But I do love to make cake! My sister celebrated her birthday this week. And plum cake was the celebration of choice. Plus, who doesn’t love autumn vibes, rich earthy fruit, and seasonal cakes?!
This heavenly plum cake is paleo and gluten free! And this earthy seasonal cake is perfect for fall. In addition, this delicious treat is made without refined sugar! This cake has a delicious soft, moist cake layer and is topped with fresh plums!
plum cake. soul fruits. what’s next?!
As my friends and I sat around the kitchen table this week, we discussed a very serious subject… Our soul fruits. Okay, maybe not so serious and kinda anti-climatic, but definitely interesting! One would be surprised how much a fruit can resemble one’s personality:)
All joking aside. What’s your soul fruit? Don’t know what to do that question? It’s okay, I’ll go first!
It was decided that my soul fruit was the plum. How does one determine their soul fruit? Well, by looking at all aspects of ones personalty, character, and essence and then translating that into a fruit. Thats how! I guess I’m earthy, deep, organic, and just fit to be a plum. I’m thinking that’s about right. Ha ha:)
And what better time to discover that my soul fruit is the plum than today! When I made this beautiful plum cake!? Normally, I don’t eat things with sugar- natural or not. But I indulged and tasted a bit of this cake. I mean, it was for a celebration right??? How could I not! The chef had to make sure it was edible before serving it to the guests.
I’m glad I did! Because I didn’t want to share any of it after I tasted it! It was sooo good!! Like heaven. I’m pretty sure those were my exact words. In any case, it was gone immediately and left a happy bunch of cake eaters in its wake. Served along side a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. It’s like, YUM!…!!!!!
