Plum Cake

IMG_6490

Plum Cake – It always brought back memories of Christmas holidays, time off from school, colorful stars outside homes, carols at school, and of course Plum Cake from the local bakery. It was truly a master piece and every bite would burst with sweet, tang from the raisins, the caramel sauce and the whole gamut of flavors that are so complex tapping in your taste buds in a way that  you have never known before…I love this cake so much that I had decided I was going to make the egg less version of the Fruit Cake at  home as often as I can. This is a more to go version and I love the compelling tastes in both of them a lot! It might seem like a lot of ingredients but once you actually bite in to this cake, you will agree that its completely worth it. The source of this recipe is from a friend R who got it from a post on a Facebook group.
