"A cross between a cake and a loaf bread, with sweet-tart plums and a brown sugar topping. Just like my mother-in-law used to make. Use plain, lemon, or orange yogurt."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a 9x5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray, or line with parchment paper.
  2. Sprinkle chopped plums with 1 tablespoon of flour in a bowl, and toss to coat. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat the margarine, white sugar, and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs. In another bowl, sift together 1 1/2 cup of flour with salt and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the egg mixture, alternating with yogurt until the mixture forms a smooth batter. Lightly stir in the flour-coated plums, and pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with brown sugar.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven, and let cool in the pan 10 to 15 minutes before removing from pan for slicing.

The pan of this stuff did not last long! Plums gave it a slightly tart flavor, which is a great contrast to the sweetness of the bread. I lacked enough white sugar, so I used 1/4 cup white and ...

This is such a great recipe as is. Or you can easily mix it up just by changing the yogurt, fruit and topping. My daughter loves it with plums and mixed berry yogurt. I love it with cranberries ...

Excellent! I made this cake a couple of days ago with minor changes (which sometimes is only due to what similar ingredient I can find in my fridge). First I bake alot with spelt flour (din...

Yum! Made two loaves and froze one. Just as good from the freezer as from the oven and is great when toasted.

Excellent! Although I made a few changes. I used 1 1/2 cup plums. Instead of 1/2 cup margarine I used 100g of butter. I knocked back the sugar to 3/4 cup and used Vanilla yogurt. It did ta...

I was looking for a way to use up the abbundance of plums we had from my parent's tree, and was so glad to have found this recipe. It is a wonderful blend of sweet and tart between the brown su...

Great recipe! I wasn't sure if I would like this or not but I had a dozen plums that needed to be used so decided to give it a shot. Consequently, I had a lot more plums than the recipe called f...
