Banana-Plum Cake

The summer is getting to an end and slowly the autumn is settling in. A subtle mood of baking makes its way and all I can think about is baking something at the edge of the summer season. Luckily this banana-plum cake is easy to make and is worth it!

This is how I got to prepare this delicious cake which brings in one plate the taste of refreshing fruit cake and the taste of fresh banana bread. With a bit of cinnamon and a sour feeling from the plums is just melting in your mouth!
