Tuesdays With Dorie ~ Dimply Plum Cake



The past two weeks have been chock full of chocolate cookies! Which has been fun and fabulous, but it was nice to switch it up and bake a delicious breakfasty cake for this week's TUESDAYS WITH DORIE. This week's TWD selection comes to us from Michelle of BAKE-EN.




I did omit the cardamom from this recipe because I did not have any and it was really expensive at my grocery store!
Also, I figured since I took so much liberty with last weeks Chunksters, I pretty much stuck to the recipe with this one. You can find this recipe on Michelle's beautiful blog~
I will say I baked this bad-boy ten minutes longer than the recommended 40 minutes and it was still a wee bit under done in the center, but Nate was demanding PLUM CAKE!! PLUM CAKE!!! So be it. It still tasted very good!




Be sure to visit all the TUESDAYS WITH DORIE blogs that made this cake, many got into theplaying around section in the margin and made some awesome fruit and herb combos!

Thats hilarious that N was chanting. It reminds me of T chanting when I made the snickery squares! Boys and their sweets. Cracks me up!

This turned out very nice! I baked the heck out of my second one as I got a bunch of raw on the first one.

I'm jealous, your cake seems so moist and delicate! Lucky you.
I probably didn't get to enjoy it at its best.
Great job... on the cake as well as on the pictures!

I left out the cardamom because of the cost and then wondered if it was the right thing to do. Your cake looks delicious and moist, great job!

I love how gooey the cake looks around the fruit. Nice job.

Joelen said...

Gorgeous color of your cake... and amazing that it was still slighly underdone after 40 mins. I guess I don't blame Nate for wanting to try it sooner than later!

Erin said...

Your cake looks so moist and delicious! Glad it didn't disappoint!

Barbara said...

Lovely! Mine was underdone at first, too. Then I baked it some more and it was a bit dry. Still not bad, though!
