On Christmas I planned a full paleo Polish dinner. When I set the menu every year I’m always pretty ambitious. There’s typically several dishes that get cut at the last minute and dessert this year was one of them.
Even though I went into my cooking marathon planning to serve this dish, I simply ran out of time.
Since I had already gathered all the ingredients, I made sure to still make this cake…it just wound up being prepared a week later than I initially planned. :)
Instead of on Christmas, I prepared this Plum Paleo Cake on New Year’s Eve. We hosted a pot luck dinner at our house with several of our close friends. We played board games until the wee hours of the night and topped everything off with this cake.
Not Your Typical Cake
For my birthday my family would surprise me with an ice cream cake.
This cake is more along the consistency of a coffee cake than a birthday cake. The major ingredient is plums though you could use any type of nectarine or pluot and you’ll have a slightly different flavor with the same consistency. You’ll notice as it cooks that the cake will rise up to meet the level of the fruit.
How To Serve?
Straight out of the oven this cake will still have all of its juices in the bottom of the dish. Be sure when serving to not leave those juices behind. It would probably even taste great drizzled over a scoop of ice cream.
I think this cake is awesome warm but once those liquids firm up overnight in the fridge, it also tastes great cold.
I wouldn’t recommend having this cake for breakfast because you don’t want to start your day consuming sugar. However if you just can’t hold off until dessert, an afternoon snack after lunch would be a fine time to enjoy a slice of this Paleo Plum Cake.
