Best plum cake from my easy cake recipes collection

Perfect plum recipe for those who love fruit cakes

I have this plum cake recipe from my good friend who likes to experiment with new easy cake recipes. The original recipe was for a rhubarb cake, but my friend did not have any and she used plums instead. I also used plums and found this fruit cake recipe to be just great.

plum cake recipe The fruit cake recipe below is a variation of a regular fruit cake. It is relatively moist and little sour like a regular fruit cake, but the kick comes with its sweet crust on top which tastes and looks great.

If you like, you can substitute the plums with cherries or apples, and come up with a new recipe. If you have rhubarb, you can use it as well, you just need to peel it and cut into squares.

The rhubarb would greatly complement the sweetness of the meringue crust, so I dare you to try it.

Enjoy this easy fruit cake recipe.
