Sweet Awakening: Vegan and Gluten-free Plum Cake with Pears

The Plum Cake is a sweet with raisins and dried fruit of English origin, mainly used at teatime. Over the years, it has been changing a lot and has become more appropriate for breakfast, introducing ingredients such as yogurt.

The recipe that I propose today is a very special version of the plum cake, not only is vegan and gluten free but it is thought to start the day in the sweetest and healthy way. Thanks to the mixture of pears and Sorghum flour this Plum cake remains sweet and fluffy, ideal for breakfast and much appreciated by adults and children.
