Green Plum Tea Cakes



Today we are flying back home.

Back to California.

So excited to pack, to prepare, to think about seeing surfers on Malibu, Magnus wanted to make something – to bring home something special for his Uncle. And his Grandmother.

We baked green plum tea cakes, with oats and hemp seeds. We wrapped them in wax paper and tied gold strings. We had some for our mid-morning snack, served with yogurt and brown sugar.

Green plums – Greengage or Reine Claudes – are tart plums, smaller than the classic purple plus  – are perfect for baking. It has good amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, vitamin A, potassium, some protein and fiber. The recipe calls for spelt flour, almond flour, flaxseeds and oats – which contain Omega 3, potassium, iron, calcium, Vitamin E, fiber, and many other good things. If you can’t get green plums, you can use any other kind of tart fruits, like raspberries, green apple, or rhubarb.

Something nice to bring home.




Green Plum Tea Cakes



3 eggs

1 stick of butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup ground almonds

1/3 cup spelt flour

1/3 cup oats

1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds

1/2 cup chopped green plums

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Some yogurt and brown sugar for serving


1. In a pot, melt the butter

2. In a bowl, mix together the sugar, the eggs, the melted butter and vanilla extract.

3. Slowly mix in the spelt flour, ground almonds, ground flaxseed and oats.

4. Fold in the chopped fruit.

5. Pour into small tea cake molds (I use silicone so I don’t butter the molds). Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top of the cakes are golden. Let cool and serve with muesli yogurt.
