The cake is made up of two layers, a buttery cake and juicy plums. You can also add a cinnamon streusel topping and make it a three-layer breakfast cake.

I did not add the streusel topping because I feel that it doesn’t need it. But if you want added goodness, feel free to add it. This cake is anything but dry, it is super moist and buttery filled with plums coated with cinnamon.

the details,

To make this gluten-free breakfast plum cake is simple. First, you toss the plum wedges in some coconut sugar and cinnamon and set them aside for a few minutes. This allows them to release some of their juices and stops them from making the cake soggy.

The rest is easy, combined dry ingredients, cream the butter with eggs and sugar, add milk and vanilla combine with dry ingredients.

Now comes the fun part, spread the batter into a cake pan, then top with cinnamon plum wedges. If you are using a streusel topping, this is the time to add it. Once the cake is fully baked, the batter rises and encases each plum with buttery goodness.
