Plum Cake

Hi, my dear friends...here I am with my first blog recipe, which truly came out with the idea of making cooking fun and something on the net about good cooking where you can always check out the best recipes. Moreover, my loved ones don't have to call me to learn about any particular dish because I intend to put here everything which I have tried my hands on.


1. self raising flour- 2 cups
2. castor or granulated sugar- 2cups
3. baking powder- 1 and 1/2 teaspoons
4. baking soda- 1/2 teaspoon
5. butter -125 grams
6. eggs -3
7. milk -1/4 cup
8. plums deseeded and cut into small pieces- 1 cup

Take the butter and mix it until it turns light and fluffy. You don't need to mix it  for more than five minutes if you are using an electric mixture.

Now put 2 cups of sugar little at a time  mixing it all the while.
When the sugar is mixed nicely, put eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.
Now take the flour and put the baking powder and the baking soda and sieve it so that it is mixed properly in the flour.  Mix the flour about 2 tablespoons at a time in the butter and egg mixture, if the batter is too thick add the milk in small quantities until it becomes of right dropping consistency.

After all the flour and the milk has been mixed thoroughly, put the plums and mix gently. Put it into a baking tin lined with butter and a little bit of flour.
Place it in an oven until it's baked brown. Put the plum icing over it when the cake is at room temperature, or you can eat it just like that!!!

Plum Icing

Cream- 150 gms
Icing sugar - 6 tablespoons
Ripe Plums cut into two halves

Take one pan and put 3 tablespoons of water into it. When it starts boiling, put 2 tablespoons of sugar and let it boil for a minute. Then put the cut plums into it and let it simmer for 2 minutes and take it off the stove and let it cool for an hour. You can also refrigerate it for half an hour.
Take the cream in a bowl and put the remaining sugar into it and start beating it over a bowl filled with ice. When it becomes thick, spread it on the cake evenly. After that take out the refrigerated plums and line it up nicely on the cake. You can pour the plum syrup on the cake. Now, the cake is ready to be devoured!!!!
