This is one for Autumn, this is perfect if you have plums which are going slightly over, the house fills with the warming smells of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves and vanilla. This is a recipe from www.bakeandnourish.com I made only a small adjustment.
6tbs coconut oil
30g coconut sugar
4-5 plums pitted and cut into 6-8 wedges
300g spelt flour
2tsp baking powder
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
1tsp ground ginger
1tsp ground cardamom
1tsp ground cloves
1tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
150ml almond milk, or any other plant-based milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Preheat the oven to 180°C, grease a 18cm cake tin and place on a lined baking tray.
Cover the base of the cake tin with the coconut sugar and place your plums on top, covering the base completely, starting from the outside working in.
Mix together all the dry in a large bowl and set aside.
Warm the coconut oil, maple and vanilla in a small pan until combined.
Pour the wet into the dry and stir till combined but don’t overwork, at the very end stir in the apple cider vinegar quickly. Pour the batter on top of the plums.
Place in the hot oven for 40-50mins. Check after 40minutes, if a skewer comes out clean its done.
Remove from the oven and let it cool down completely, turn out onto a serving plate with the plums now facing up.
