Sweet Plum Cake – Vegan Gluten-Free

I love this healthy sweet plum cake that is 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!

Here are a few of my favorite plum recipes:

Plum Crumble

Yummy Prune Jam with Apples and Cinnamon

 Plum Crumble – This plum crumble is delicious and very healthy too because there is no white sugar in it. Also, it is an extremely easy to make dessert.

Here are a couple of prune recipes:

 Sweet Prune Fruit Pudding with Custard is Delicious – This prune fruit pudding made with the fruit compote is so delicious. What makes this pudding so special is being topped with the vegan custard. Also, what I really like about it is that there is no sugar added.

  Prune Powerballs are Yummy and Full of Energy – These prune power balls rolled in coconut have a bit of history.  Back in the hippy days, they were the famous ‘Bliss Balls’ that we all made very frequently. We made them with what we now call healthy superfoods.

 Yummy Prune Jam is Sugar-Free with Apples and Cinnamon – This prune jam was so easy to make. Adding the cinnamon made it extra delicious. I did add a little stevia to make it taste more like a jam. This recipe makes two small jars.

  1. 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:)

  2. 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.
