Sweet Plum Cake – Vegan Gluten Free

I love this healthy gluten free, dairy free and egg free cake. For me it is also important that there are no unhealthy sugars and any healthy sugars be  in small quantities. Being vegan is important to me. This is why I create recipes like the one below.  Enjoy!

    This sounds very yummy! I noticed in the directions it read to chop 2 cups of apples
    At which time I think it should have read chop 2
    Cups of plums:)

    Thank you Mel for pointing out the typo. It happens as I do not have a proof reader. Thank you for doing it.
    Let me know how it works for you.

    Made this. Looked beautiful. Taste was a bit overpoweringly baking powder though. I think I would be inclined to reduce or replace some with apple cider vinegar. It rose fine.
