However, it’s still used to name a particular plum species called prune. There are dozens of plum fruits types cultivated all over the planet, and once they are dehydrated, all of them can be called dried plums and used in recipes requiring prunes.

Vegan German Plums Cake
240 ml / 1 cup full fat coconut milk
4 tbsp / 1⁄4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
60 ml / 1⁄4 cup melted mild coconut oil
1⁄2 tsp bitter almond essence
125 g / 1⁄2 cup + 2 tbsp caster sugar
DRY INGREDIENTS (GLUTEN-FREE VERSION):
195 g / 1,1⁄2 cup + 2 tbsp buckwheat flour
20 g / 2 tbsp cornflour / corn starch
80 g / 3⁄4 cup finely ground almonds (or almond meal)
1 tsp gluten-free certified baking soda
1⁄2 tsp gluten-free certified baking powder
DRY INGREDIENTS (REGULAR VERSION):
220 g / 2 cups all purpose white flour
80 g / 3⁄4 cup finely ground almonds (or almond meal)
1 tsp baking soda
1⁄2 tsp baking powder
3-5 dried plums, cut into 6 slices or halves
2 tsp icing sugar, to decorate (optional)
1. Heat up the oven to 170° C (or 150° C fan forced) / 340° F (300° F fan forced). Grease a baking tin with a very small amount of oil.
2. Mix all the wet ingredients in a large bowl.
3. Place a sieve over the bowl and sift through all the dry ingredients, except for the ground almonds.
If you are using wheat flour, be careful not to overmix the batter as the cake will be tough.
4. Fold in the finely ground almonds. Again, if you used regular wheat flour, take care to fold them in
very gently or else the cake will be tough.
5. Transfer the batter to a lightly greased baking tin. If your tin doesn’t have a removable bottom, it
may be a good idea to place 2 long and wide strips of baking paper down first so that you can use
them as handy tabs to make cake removal easier.
6. Decorate with plum segments or plum halves if your plums are little. To prevent plums from
sinking to the bottom, dip the side of the plum that will rest directly on the batter in a little bit of all
purpose flour (or cornstarch for the GF version) first before arranging on top of the cake.
7. Bake for about 55-60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean and the top is nicely browned.
8. Once cool, remove from the tin, sprinkle the top of the cake with a little bit of icing sugar and
perhaps a dusting of ground cinnamon too, if you like.
