Plum and Walnut Cake
Recently, I bought a slice of the most wonderful plum and walnut cake from Luneburger. It comprised a light sponge cake topped with sliced juicy plums and candied walnuts. Luneburger change their cakes all the time, and this was the first time I had seen that particular one.
I loved it so much that I was inspired to try and re-create it at home.
First up was trying to find a recipe. From Google images, I found a cake that most resembled what I was looking for, being this recipe from Baking Beash.
Next, it was time to try it out, so I bought the plums, and had all the other ingredients in the house. The cake came together very easily, and this was the result:
It received a number of appreciative reviews at work. It is not quite the same as the Luneburger cake, but it is still pretty good. If you have a surplus of plums that you would like to bake with, this lovely cake is the perfect way to use them.
