Plum Traybake Cake

Plum Traybake Cake

Once, I was craving for a simple plum cake and I found this recipe. It's homemade, soft, fluffy and most importantly, fast. I mixed everything together quickly, I put the plums on top, and baked in the oven.

I recommend this recipe. You can replace the plums with any other fruits and the batter is simple and fast, with ingredients which can be found in any kitchen.
