Remember a few weeks ago I mentioned how we had plums coming out our ears?
Okay maybe not that many but the plum tree we inherited in our backyard was literally overflowing with the yummy stone fruit. While I ejoy them. There’s only so many you can eat whole. After giving away a bunch, made a super easy chia seed jam that turned out pretty good but still had a ton of plums!
I tried to think back to what types of things my mom would make after we would spend hours picking fruit from our neighboring orchards. She canned a bunch but I wasn’t in the mood to do all the peeling. She made a lot of jams but again, didn’t feel like canning nor did I have time. Then I remembered her yummy cobblers and crisps she would make using the left over fruit. We would eat them in the morning with breakfast or at night warmed up with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. So good!
Naturally I decided to whip up something similar,
However this one is Paleo friendly, gluten-free, dairy-free and sweetened with coconut sugar.
- 1 lb of plums
- 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1 tbsp. coconut sugar
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9x9 baking dish with coconut oil.
- Wash, halve and remove seed from plums.
- In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and coconut sugar.
- In a separate bowl, mix together melted coconut oil, eggs, and vanilla.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well.
- Spread into prepared baking dish.
- Spread mixture evenly into baking dish.
- Gently press plums skin side up into the dough.
- Bake for 40 minutes or until lightly golden.
- While baking, mix together topping ingredients.
- Remove cake and sprinkle topping over the top then bake for 15 minutes longer.
