Plum Loaf

Plum Loaf
Dried plums with sweet dark flesh and walnuts give to this cake a very special flavor. Tight, mellow, moist texture without crushing when we cut it. It keeps fresh the next day.
Enjoy a juicy slice of cake with a scoop of ice cream. So from healthy snack turns into candy stature.
Yours!
