One day while waiting for clients at the office.. I was looking at beautiful blogs and found one.. that led to here~
Could I resist?
Straight out of the oven on one of my baking sheets(I really need new ones~)See the life? Lives? And these are not Old..like the old ones gone yrs ago.. and less yrs ago..and less...
I loved the look of hers.. w/ smaller plums.. And...I had looked for some.. To no avail...
These are 2 of my daughters plums..from her fridge I forgot to tell her I borrowed 2:)
Her plums were huge.. So I only used 2 and halved the recipe..
Friends dropped by today..a dear dear couple... and I gave them half~
We kept the other half..4 lovely portions in all~
I am now addicted to this beautiful delicious light cake~
It could not be more delicious if it even tried~
Plum Almond Cake
5 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup almond flour
1/2 cup flour
13 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon lemon zest
6 Plums, halved and pits removed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and flour your tart or cake pan. In a large bowl, mix the egg whites and sugar vigorously with a wire whisk for a couple of minutes. Add the flours and whisk again and then add the cooled butter, almond extract and lemon zest and whisk until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan. Place plum halves on top of batter.
Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown.
I really think you should try it:) When I halved the recipe..I used 2 egg whites~ The rest pretty much the same~ I did slice a small part off the bottom of the plums so they would lay flatter.. I like this type of dessert..
