Turmeric Plum Cake with Turmeric Paste and Cinnamon

A soft and delicious cake made with spicy turmeric paste and juicy plums.

Turmeric Plum Cake

Remember my first turmeric post, the turmeric paste I’ve made for my golden milk? I told you I was thinking about making a cake using that paste and so I did. I made this last Sunday, after picking tones of plums from my friend’s plum tree and, after having one first bite, I already thought the cake to be really worth posting. It was soft and tender, warm in taste and aromatic due to the different spices contained by the turmeric paste, yet fruity and refreshing thanks to those wonderful plums.

Of course, if you don’t have the paste and don’t intend making it, you can easily replace it with the spices it contains, but I do recommend making the paste, especially if you enjoy golden milk and don’t feel like putting together this collection of spices each time you want to have the milk.

I’ve already told you about some of the benefits of regularly including turmeric into your diet, it seems to be able to help prevent cancer and diabetes but not only. Other studies have shown that its anti-inflammatory properties can help in case of arthritis and that curcumin, one of the compounds of turmeric, has a better effect on arthritis than anti-inflammatory medicine.

Curcumin’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties also seem to have benefits in preventing heart diseases and also due to these two properties, curcumin might help prevent or help with the symptoms of the Alzheimer’s disease.

The studies in many of these areas are still inconclusive, but very convincing in some other areas and I think having turmeric regularly is still worth it, even if it would only be able to help you with the smallest of all these health problems.

And isn’t it wonderful that you can even make sweet things with turmeric? 🙂 I found the inspiration for this cake here, but I have changed it quite a lot.

As I have already mentioned I used my turmeric paste for the cake. However you can replace that with ½ teaspoon ground turmeric, ¼ ground ginger, one pinch black pepper and one pinch nutmeg. Stir them in the warm milk as instructed in the recipe.

This is one of the most original cakes I've ever seen and definitely the most unusual use of turmeric! Since I use it almost every day (even yesterday I used it for lunch and for the dinner!), I'll be thrilled to put it into a dessert. Thank you for inspiration!

What a great looking cake...and a perfect use for plums! I haven't use tumeric often. I think I need to start using it!
