I make this each Christmas. It's an ingenious use of plum baby food, though you can substitute pureed tinned plums if you like. This recipe will make: 4 small loaves, 2 medium loaves, 1 large loaf or 1 tube cake.
Oh so delicious. I definitely recommend very ripe plums instead of the babyfood. i used about 1 1/4 cups plum puree. this recipe is also delicious for muffins. mmmmmmmmmm - 22 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I changed it a little. I put one and 1/2 cups of plum preserve I made with red plums, and instead of walnuts I chopped up the red plums and mixed them inside the batter. (I also nixed the red food coloring). After pouring the batter I spooned several t spoons of the plum preserve on top and swirled in a design. I nixed the sugar topping because it was sweet with the preserve and a bit tart as well. I scooped vanilla ice cream on top and it was done. YUM! - 10 Aug 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this was great! i added tea (instead of cloves and nutmeg) to both the frosting/sauce and the batter, which i thought was delicious. it's best in small doses, though. - 22 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
