Plum Almond Cakelink to Plum Cake

Plum Cake

Plum Cake is a simple summer cake with beautiful nutty crumbs from almond meal and juicy sweet plums nestled on top. The nutty almond flavor with a little bit of nutmeg and cardamom makes this a very tasty teatime plum cake. A tiny dollop of whipped heavy cream would be great on the side, but I just love this Summer Plum Cake as is, with a cup of tea.

Muskmelon Thyme Sorbet

Sorbets are refreshing, light and a great way to cool off on a hot summer afternoon. It is also a guilt-free treat because it’s mostly fruits. This Muskmelon Thyme Sorbet is refined sugar-free, dairy-free and comes together with a quick blend. It’s so easy that you don’t even need a recipe! Having said that, there is still a key thing to remember when you make a sorbet so that it neither gets too icy nor turns into a slushy.

I have never been a big Ice Cream fan, but both my boys are! With the weather getting warmer, I will be sharing more ice cream recipes.

This is a super easy ice cream recipe and if you are someone who never made Ice Cream before, let this be the start. You will love the creamy, delicate, not so overly sweet Ice Cream.

The countdown is over and finally, it's the first day of summer. The heat is on with temperatures shooting up to 90 F and I am totally feeling the sunshine. The weather has been playing a game with us. With all the unpredictable rain and cold winds, spring didn't feel like spring at all. The weather man from the news channel would always warn us for more rain and I would look up at the sky hoping to see the clouds go away. For the last few weeks, it started to get a little warm and I was loving it.
