I bought a bowl of plums from the Friday Market for £1 last week with the intention of consuming them purely for my 5-a-day. Usually the fruit that I get from that particular market stall is sweet and perfect (yes, really!) but surprisingly, these plums were very tart. I tried eating the fruit but it was REALLY tart (bordering on acidic sourness).
I have written a draft of the recipe for the plum cake. But I need to work on it because the plums were still so tart even after laying them on a carpet of brown sugar. I’ll have to tweak the recipe first and make it a few times to make sure it’s a recipe that works. I promise to share it as soon as I’m satisfied.
