I got given a massive haul of Victoria Plums from a kind friend, some of which I used to make some jam, and with the rest I thought I’d do a little baking!
As we head in to late summer and thoughts turn to autumn I thought I’d go for some autumnal flavours – plum and cinnamon! This makes one loaf which serves 8-10, at around 205 cals a slice!
You will need:
140g self-raising flour (any type you like)
140g dairy-free spread (I used a light version to save some calories)
140 sugar (or 70g half spoon sugar for less cals)
2 large eggs and one egg yolk, beaten
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 170 C.
Put the spread and sugar and beat lightly until fluffy. Add in the beaten egg a little at a time and beat well in between each bit.
Mix the flour and cinnamon and then add in to the wet mixture, fold it in.
Chop all bout approx 2-3 plums in to small pieces. Slice the 2-3 plums in to wedges (to decorate the top). Add the chopped plums and mix well.
Pour in to a loaf tin. Arrange the plum wedges on the top and sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar.
Put in the oven and bake for 50-60 mins. It’s done when a skewer comes out clean.
Allow to cool in the tin for about 10 mins, then remove. Slice and serve!
