Gluten-free Plum Cake

If you’re looking for a cake recipe that’s gluten-free, quick, and easy, leaving you with very little mess in the kitchen, the good news is no need to look any further!

This fruity cake is so light, moist, and delicious, it’s become my new baked favorite. Besides the clean and minimal list of ingredients, what I love most about it is how simple it is to make. You only need one bowl (or preferably a food processor), and it takes you less than 30 minutes from start to finish, including the clean up! The hardest part is waiting 45 minutes for the cake to bake and 15-30 minutes for it to cool down before you can dive in! But I’m telling you, it’s absolutely worth the wait!
