Plum Cake

What you need: 

1 lb greengage plums (overripe is fine)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 banana
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup soymilk plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
3 tablespoons applesauce
Optional: 3/4 cup chopped nutmeats

What you do: 

Place stoned plums in mixing bowl (if they're overripe, the stones will squish out with no problem). Add banana and mash well. Add remaining wet ingredients and mix well.
In sifter, combine dry ingredients and sift into wet mixture, beating well by hand or with mixer. Blend in nutmeats if desired.
Pour into nonstick loaf pan and bake at 350ºF for approximately 1 hr, or until a knife blade comes out clean.
Tip pan on its side and allow to cool on a bread rack before unmolding.
I created this when a bag of plums got pushed to the back of the fridge and were too soft to eat when I remembered them. What a lovely mistake!

Preparation Time: 
1 hr 20 min
Cooking Time: 


So I made this (my first bread ever!) and oh is it wonderful. I tweaked it a little; I added in a bit of cinnamon, dried cherries, and raisins. The nuts I chose to use was pistachios and almonds. I also subbed almond milk for the soy milk. I made these for 4th of July, and am going to take these to my non vegan friends and see what they say!

I ended up seperating the batter into 3 different loaf pans, and they seemed done in 40 mins instead of 60. :)>>>


About how many plums are in a lb? I have 3 plums and was wondering if I could decrease the ingredients to fit what I have (if I need to).

Sounds delicious.
