Here, one of my favourite cakes 🙂
Th tea inside the batter and many dried fruits and raisins!
But you don’t have to expect the classic soft cake.
This plumcake is moist but solid, it remember a bread, perfect to be cut in thin slices and spread with salted butter… with the sweet of the raisins is deliciuos!
Perfect british style!
