sponge cake with plums

sponge cake with plums, a rich, simple and very juicy cake. Delicious for breakfast or a snack, very complete with fruit and nuts.

Plums give a lot of flavor and a rich touch to biscuits, they have many properties including fiber. You can put the plums that you like, we can find them red, green, yellow, but I like the reddest or purple ones much more and if they have a touch of acidity, they look luxurious with the contrast of the sweetness of the sponge cake.
