When temperatures fall and the first leaves turn yellow, we all know: summer is over. To welcome autumn’s first signs, I made a nut and plum cake with my grandma’s plums. Every year we are happy to harvest apples and plums form old trees who have probably survived and seen so much more we ever will. Those fruits have never seen any chemicals and none knows what type they exactly they are.
But one thing is sure: they make my taste buds happy every time I take a bite of a juicy apple or plum.
You can’t compare them with any store-bought apples or plums. They taste intense and so pure.
In combination with nuts and almost christmasy spices like cinnamon, orange peel and vanilla they make the perfect autumn cake. Ripe fruit reminding you of the sun that has shine all summer long and the spices reminding you of what is going to come.
For the vegan folks out there, I provide a vegan solution in my notes below the recipe. Of course, I want all all of you to have the chance to celebrate falling leaves and sweater weather with me!
