The recipe this week was Plum cakes! I watched the video with Julia cooking them last week and they looked wonderful. I am not the biggest plum fan, so I just thought I would try a few different fruits instead. I went with an apple and a nectarine. The nectarine definitely won! The cake mix was super simple and with just two tablespoons of batter and a half of a nectarine it was quick to put together. I think the key to the batter was whipping the butter and sugar on high for over three minutes and then whipping in the eggs at a high speed as well.
They turned out great and I am glad I baked the recipe this week. If you want to check out the other variations head over to the blogroll at Tuesday with Dorie.
Here are few pictures I snapped along they way!
