Dry ingredients:

  • 100 g whole wheat flour
  • 100 g wheat flour
  • 50 g corn starch
  • 80 g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground vanilla

Liquid ingredients:

  • 200 ml oat milk*
  • 60 ml aqua faba**
  • 120 g maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 lemon juice of a lemon

For the topping:

  • 18 plums halved & stoned***
  • 1 small apple cored & sliced
  • 2 Tbsp almond slices


  1. Heat your oven to 170°C|340°F.

    Grease a baking pan (I used a rectangular shape, but you can also take a round one) with a tablespoon of coconut oil and then flour it.

  2. Put all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix with a whisk.

  3. Pour all liquid ingredients into a measuring cup (where you can also measure them at the same time) and stir briefly.

  4. Add the liquid over the flour mixture and stir with the whisk til you get a smooth dough. Please don't overmix, otherwise the cake will be tough.

  5. Put the finished dough into the prepared baking pan and cover the dough with the pieces of plum and apple.

    Finally sprinkle on the almonds and put the cake in the oven for about 35-40 minutes.

  6. It is best to do the knife test after 35 minutes and if there is still some dough hanging on, let the cake bake for another 5 minutes.

  7. Let the finished cake cool in the mold on a wire rack.


*Or another plant milk of choice.


**The liquid of a can/glass of cooked chickpeas.


***If you prefer a 'pure' plum cake, simply leave out the apple and take a total of about 25 plums instead.
