This easy recipe for gluten free plum cake uses fresh plums. In late summer I have a lot of plums on my trees and a fruit dessert is the perfect thing to use them for. This simple dessert is a cross between a cake and a crumble. It's perfect with coffee for brunch or after dinner. 


1/2 cup Unsalted Butter, softened
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 large Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 cup Gluten Free Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
3 cups Fresh Plums, sliced

Crumb Topping:
3/4 cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Brown Rice Flour
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 cup Unsalted Butter, melted
1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a nine inch baking pan with butter or coconut oil. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer beat the unsalted butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla, beat until mixed in. Add the gluten free flour, baking powder and salt. Mix just until the ingredients are combined to form a cake batter.

Pour the cake batter into the greased nine inch baking dish

Cover the top of the cake batter with the sliced plums.

In the bowl of your stand mixer combine the rolled oats, brown sugar, brown rice flour, sea salt, melted butter and walnuts. Blend until a crumble forms.

Pour the crumble evenly over the sliced plum layer of the cake. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the plum layer is bubbling.

Once the cake is cool store it in the refrigerator.


This cake is delicious on its own or served warm with vanilla ice cream.
