If you love fruity cakes then this one is definitely for you!


The crumble is EVERYTHING!

This loaf makes the perfect weekend treat and little baking project! If you don't like plums you can use any fruit you love - peaches would go great in this loaf!


Ingredients in plum loaf

I wouldn’t suggest changing anything in this recipe, keep the ingredients and measurements the same and you won’t be disappointed.

Use regular all-purpose flour for best results.

I used golden cane sugar and it makes this loaf so delicious! If you don't have this on hand you can use regular granulated sugar or cane sugar.

Use butter and milk. You can easily make this dairy-free by using nut milk and vegan butter.

You will need 2 eggs, baking powder, baking soda and vanilla.

For the crumble you will need golden cane sugar (or granulated), all-purpose flour, cinnamon and melted butter of your choice.

Tools you will need to make this

You will need:

  • 1 loaf tin
  • 1 mixing bowl and hand mixer or stand mixer
  • 2 bowls
  • Spatula to mix

For measuring: 1/4 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 tbsp, 1/3 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 cup.
