Growing up we had Italian plum trees on our property so anything with plums brings back fond childhood memories. This cake is the perfect addition to any brunch or breakfast. You can use any variety of plums available in this or try using different fruit such as berries.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 8-9 inch springform pan. Line the bottom round of the pan with parchment paper.
Beat the coconut oil and coconut sugar until light and creamy. Add the maple syrup, zest and vanilla and then eggs(one at a time) and beat until smooth.
Sift the dry ingredients(except the meal) over a medium bowl. Once sifted add the meal to the bowl. Gradually beat the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until a smooth even batter is formed. The batter will be very thick.
Pour batter into a prepared pan and smooth it out until it is evenly distributed. Place the halved plums skin side up on top of the batter, starting from the inside and working outwards. Sprinkle with coconut sugar and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick when inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
