A deliciously tempting mini 6″ cake that is naturally gluten and dairy free! Moist hazelnut cake with plum filling and dairy free cinnamon frosting. It’s delicious and easy to make, with no oil needed!
The first month of 2017 is almost over, and what a year it’s been already! It’s hard to ignore politics at the moment, but for our own personal sanity I think it’s a good idea to take a step away from it for a while. Just sit down with a cup of coffee, a good book and a slice of Plum and Hazelnut Cake with Cinnamon Frosting and have some “me” time in the midst of all the craziness. Doesn’t that sound good right now? So take a moment to grab this amazing recipe and then switch off for a while, you deserve it!
Wow, what a day today has been! It’s my day off so I had plans to be pretty lazy and also make some mini poptarts. The lazy part of the plan didn’t work out too well when the dishwasher decided to break and flood my kitchen! So I have spent most of the day trying to fix the dishwasher (and failing), cleaning up the the floods and hand washing everything that was in the dishwasher! I did make the mini poptarts too though and they’re adorable (don’t worry, I’ll be sharing those with you ASAP!). I’m going to spend the rest of the evening watching New Girl and eating pasta!
When a day doesn’t go to plan it can really throw you off, so I decided to cheer myself up by sharing something with you all that went better than planned – this amazing plum and ginger upside down cake! I got this idea from a client at work, she told me about a plum and ginger upside down cake that she makes and it just sounded divine to me, I had to make my own!
I’ve never made an upside down cake before, I’ve always associated them with pineapple and I’m allergic to pineapple so it’s never an idea that’s been at the front of my mind. I’m glad I started with this cake though. The combination of the buttermilk, sour cream, and syrupy goodness make this cake so moist it should be illegal! Yet it still holds its shape well, slides out of the pan with zero effort and isn’t mushy.
