Care for a slice of Pluot Cake?

Never heard of a Pluot Cake? Never heard of pluots? You’re not alone there. I had no idea but was intrigued – after all, how good does this cake look?

Essentially, if you cross a plum (“plu”) and an apricot (“ot”) you end up with a pluot.

Sweet and juicy – not quite plum, not quite apricot but certainly delicious. And where there’s tasty summer stone fruit – cake recipes are sure to follow.

This Pluot Cake recipe takes this little known fruit and teams it with a lovely simple vanilla cake. And like plums and apricots, the pluot flavor and color intensifies with baking to give you a delicious – and easy, summer cake.

Drizzle over the milky vanilla icing and you’re set for a real treat – and probably a conversation about pluots with whoever you share this cake with.

No pluots? Well you can easily use plums or apricots instead.
