Hello dearest friends,

last week’s Mohubb’s was a lot of fun. I really love all the help and support I’m getting these days to make this program happen, and I couldn’t be more grateful!

The highlight of the night were the two delicious cakes made by my loyal volunteer, Andrea ❤

Here’s the recipe to one of the cakes we made, it was so tasty, soft and moist… a must try!

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (200 g) plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) vegan margarine
  • 1 cup (125 g) all-purpose or plain flour (we mixed it with buckwheat flour for texture)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup (60 g) non-dairy yogurt or tofu dessert
  • 8-10 small plums, halved and pitted
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 F / 180 C /  and lightly grease a baking pan.
  2. Cream the margarine and 1 cup of sugar together until combined and fluffy.  Add the flour and baking powder and mix to combine.
  3. Add the tofu dessert, and mix all ingredients together, then spoon batter into the cake tin.  Smooth the top down and add the pitted, halved plums, skin side up.
  4. Sprinkle lemon juice on the plums to make the surface wet so it will stick, then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon on top.
  5. Bake 45 to 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (of batter, not plum juice).
  6. Cool on a rack.
