If you have a ton of plums like me this time of year, you’re probably searching for something to do with them. Next Saturday, I’ll post about my first ever jam adventure. Today, I’m sharing about Spiced Plum Bread.
After reading the reviews, I made a couple of changes to the recipe. I used a cup of cut up fresh plums, instead of canned. I added a cup of our homemade homegrown apple sauce. I also changed out the all-purpose flour for some Oregon grown and locally milled Teff flour. I switched the amounts of the spices, cloves getting 1/4 teaspoon and cinnamon getting 1/2 teaspoon. Then I used pecans instead of walnuts, I bought these from the grower’s market.
I probably could have made two loaves but I filled up my bread tin to the top, hoping it would puff up nice and big. It didn’t puff up, but stayed right at the top of the bread tin.
This will be served with chai and the option to top with plum jam, goat cheese, cream cheese, or melted butter.
I still have a whole tree covered in plums so stay tuned for more plummy yummy.
