Wild Plums for Shirleys Plum Cake


Wild Plums for  Shirleys Plum Cake

A wild Plumb tree as sprouted in my garden over the last four years, this year it has been full of plumbs which I have enjoyed picking each day, I have already made Shirleys Plumb cake twice [delicious] so I am now going to freeze the rest for crumbles and pies.

I've made it twice, but I'm not sure if my mixture is the right consistency. It seems a bit too wet.

Havent had a problem Linda if anything the cake is quite firm, wonder if its anything to do with different ovens or even the size of the eggs?;0)

Made another one today, and it's come out fine. When I re-read the recipe, I'd been using too many plums. As it happens my plums have been quite juicy, so I don't think that helped. I've been using 8 instead of 8ozs. lol

I just checked the recipe I posted on here in case I'd made an error !
All well, sorry your first one wasn't too good, Linda.

It is scrummy. Handy to have pen and paper. I wrote it down and put with my other recipes in my cookbook. :o))
