a plate of food and a cup of coffee

Almond plum cake

I came up with a recipe like a gift to almond lovers. It's delicious, it's a sweet, soft cake that smells like almonds. I cooked it with the beautiful plums of the season, I never thought it would look so good! If you want to bake a cake with a damp texture, your main ingredient is obvious; powdered almonds. You can find it in stores that sell pastry ingredients ready, or you can buy it from nuts and transfers. Or you can use your almonds at home by pulling them in the blender. (Provided that they peel off their brown outer shells beforehand) Almond powder is one of the most preferred ingredients of someone who set out to bake gluten-free cakes. I also added bittersweet aroma as I want to taste intense almonds in this cake, which, of course, is not a mandatory ingredient. It is a point that I emphasize to cook in the clamped mold; Since it is a very delicate cake, let's guarantee our business despite the risk of disintegration.
I was ecstatic with this recipe, which I prepared based on the excess of powdered almonds and elder plums in the cupboard. The smell of almonds that engulfed the whole house did not leave the house for a long time. It made me happy with a cup of coffee.
