This slightly spiced plum yoghurt cake is one of my favourite summer time cakes. The plums make it slightly tart, but the cake is sweet and spiced with Pepper & Me Bakers Blend!
I love to serve it with natural yoghurt and a good cup of coffee! I have decorated with cake with freeze dried raspberries and dried rose petals.
This sweet, spiced yoghurt cake is the perfect moist summery cake when you have plenty of plums in season! Alternatively you can use drained black doris can plums or other stone fruits! Don’t forget the Pepper & Me Bakers Blend because it really does make the cake delicious!
