Plum Cake

Ok, I apologize up front! Just click off this post if you don't need any talk about sweet stuff.

Now....for those who are still with me. You have to try this batter cake. It's got baby food in it. It's got fruit in it.

Yeah, that's right; it's got two containers of plum baby food in it. I just love baby food.

I'm telling you it is so yummy! 

I encourage you to hit the baby food aisle at the grocery store and make this. Here's the recipe. 

2 c. sugar
2 c. flour
1 c. oil
3 eggs
2  jars plum baby food
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. cloves
1 c. nuts

Put all the ingredients in a large bowl to mix on medium speed. Bake at 350 degrees in a bundt pan for approximately an hour.

Side notes:

I will tell you that you can use plum with anything else in it. I think mine was two jars of plums with bananas. Whatever you can find will work. And if you don't care for cloves, just dump more cinnamon in!!

I'm also going to put an ooey gooey confectioner's sugar drizzle on top.
