Eggless Plum Coconut Coffee Cake


I was not having any plan to make this perfect coffee cake  until I saw these wonderful plums in supermarket.  It was a spontaneous decision. This cake don’t have any spices, still it is perfect for a coffee break

Get ready with ingredients

Sift cake flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Then whisk it with  desiccated coconut.


Beat yogurt and sugar till smooth.  Then mix along with milk and oil.

Wash, pit  and cut the plums.


There goes dry and wet together..

Prefer to have  the goodness of molasses for these simple coffee cake


Last but not the least goes plums and dry-fruits

Fold it!


In loaf pan…


Bake it!


Baker :  Why are you so crumbled?

Eggless Plum Coconut coffee cake: Excuse me, ” I am awesome, not like how it is shown in  this picture!”

Spontaneous decisions are good! This cake don’t get perfectly cut on same day.  You will get a neat slice next morning !

Enjoy with a cup of coffee!
