Christmas is round the corner and we are guessing that everyone has plans. So, it is time to gear up for the biggest festive season. No Christmas is celebration is good without a plum cake so here we are sharing the yummiest plum cake’s recipe to add more sweetness to your celebrations.

And even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, there’s just a few days for this year to end so let’s learn a plum cake to celebrate these days left! So let’s get into it.


∎ 250 gm refined flour.

∎ 150 gm brown sugar.

∎ 30 gm almonds.

∎ 30 gm walnuts.

∎ 1/4 cup milk.

∎ 150 gm Unsalted butter.

∎ 1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon.

∎ 100 gm prunes.

∎ 5 drop vanilla essence.

∎ 2 teaspoon baking powder.

∎ 3 eggs.


∎ Take a large bowl and sieve together the flour and the baking powder. Keep it aside. Now in another bowl mix together the brown sugar and butter, till the sugar dissolves completely. Take the help of an electric blender. Now break the eggs and add them one by one. Keep beating the mixture till it is light and frothy.

∎ Gradually add the flour to this egg-butter and sugar mixture spoon by spoon so that no lumps are formed. Keep stirring to attain a smooth mixture. Add the milk and the vanilla essence and mix well. Add cinnamon powder and blend well. Allow the batter to rest for 10 minutes.

∎ Meanwhile chop the nuts and the prunes finely. Mix in the batter. Beat well again. Reserve some nuts that you can put on top of the cake. Now pre-heat the oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. Prepare a baking tray by lining it with butter paper. Grease it with oil or butter and dust some flour. Add the batter.

∎ Bake at 180 degrees for one hour or at 200 degrees Celsius for 45 minutes. The temperature mostly depends on the type of oven you have. Insert a skewer to check if the cake is ready. If it comes out clean, take out the cake and place it on a wire rack to cool.

∎ Carefully take the cake out from the baking tray. Slice it and serve with tea, coffee or with an assortment of snacks. This cake also goes well with vanilla ice-cream. You can also make a quick icing by beating together one cup icing sugar and one cup unsalted butter. Mix vigorously, till the mixture becomes creamy. Put it in the fridge for one hour. Now put it in the piping bag and use it to decorate the cake. If you want your icing to be colorful, you can divide this butter-sugar mixture in two parts and add the two colors of your choice in both the parts. Put them in separate icing bags and use them to rave up your cake.

Bake and have fun! But if you want to order, then remember Sin Bakes is taking orders for plum cakes on this Christmas.
