Yellow Plum Cake

I’m finally back from my vacation! We spent 3 weeks visiting my family in Switzerland! Daily trips and a 3-day trip to Venice left us with many wonderful memories!

I might share some pictures in a separate blog post;))

This yellow plum cake is similar to previous recipes I’ve shared using plums or peaches, but this is the first time I used yellow plums. I was really happy with the result, so yummy!

Peach Cake

Happy Sunday and happy Labour Day Weekend!

I am looking forward to be back blogging after a bit of a longer-than-I-thought-I-would-take summer/blogging break. I’ve also went to Switzerland visiting my family which was really really beautiful.

When I came back it was finally Peach Season! Fresh peaches from the Niagara Region in Ontario.

My daughter came back from a trip to the St. Jacobs Farmers Market with a box full of smaller, but so delicious local peaches. Of course I had to use some to make a cake;)
