Baked on Monday - Plum Cakes
Hi all! To my American blog friends, I hope you had a perfect and fireworks filled 4th of July!
I can smell the plum cakes baking....mmm. These are so easy to make. You just dump all the ingredients together in a bowl, mix, pour into cupcake tin, and top with the plums. Done. I guess I should give you the actual recipe now...
Plum Cakes - makes 12
3/4 cup all-purpose/plain flour
2 cups icing sugar
150g (5 1/4 oz) almond meal (finely ground almonds)
180g (6 1/3 oz) melted butter
6 egg whites
6 plums, halved
Preheat oven to 320f/160c. Place flour, sugar, almond meal, butter and egg whites in a bowl and mix until well combined. Spoon the batter into a well greased 12 hole, 1/2 cup, muffin tin. Top with halved plums, cut side up, and bake for 30-40 minutes or test with a skewer. Cool on a wire rack.
These go well with a little real iced tea! Enjoy.
