Plum and Boysenberry Yoghurt Cake

Plum and Boysenberry Yoghurt Cake, quick and easy moist cake thanks to the apricot jam and yoghurt

Several weeks ago my officemate brought a huge plastic bag filled with plums freshly picked out of their garden definitely I grabbed some so that I can use it on something. When I got home I was thinking what to do with them, with lots of Boysenberry Yoghurt in the fridge and some apricot jam in the cupboard it will definitely be a plum cake. I was thinking of how to incorporate the plums into the cake, at first I thought I can put it on the top but I was afraid it will sink to the bottom once the cake rises so I placed it below and prepare it like an upside down cake. Aesthetically it did not come out nice but I tasted great, hopefully I can perfect the looks next time by adding some sort of caramel to the top so the pores does not show but for now here is how I made it.

    I think this looks quite nice! Maybe dust a bit of powdered sugar on it to dress it up, but it’s really good as is. Sounds like a terrific recipe — thannks.

  2. I can’t wait for the stone fruits to become more available in HK. This dessert is just stunning. Just Shared!

  3. This looks amazing! I love the yogurt in the dish… must be very moist.

    This is so creative… I do not like buying plums as they are always tart and never get sweet enough for me to eat… now I know what I can do with them 🙂 Thanks for the recipe

  5. I love plums especially when they are baked! I haven’t tried the yogurt cake before despite I’ve seen it on food blogs. Love the thought of yogurt in the cake – sounds much lighter. 🙂
