Plums are added to what would other wise be a standard banana cake to create something that is a little sweeter and with a bit more texture.
Loved the idea of the plums and bananas as I had both! I did make several changes though: 2 cups flour, 3/4 cup whole wheat flower 2 tsp vanilla Brown sugar instead of white 3/4tsp salt nutmeg and cinammon handful of blueberries (toatally unnecessary just had them) It was really really delicious andlasted only a couple of hours in my house. You could add more sugar if you like sweeter things but we loved it this way! - 04 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Tastes great! Perfectly moist and very yummy! We were just given about 10lbs of plums and I had to find something to do with them I doubled the recipe and we've had it for breakfast and snacks for 3 days and some is in the freezer! The kids loved it and so did my husband, and he doesnt usually like fruit breads. I followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I may do next time is add some nuts if i have them on hand, but the recipe is perfect without them. - 11 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
this should really be called banana plum cake since its in a cake pan. anyway. i took the advice of another reviewer and substituted brown for white sugar, 1/2 cup wheat for part of the white flour, and it was good. my husband liked it much better than i did but i used my plums and that was my objective. i cant quite put my finger on what id do differently next time but ill keep it in the recipe box! - 27 Mar 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
