Finally was successful in creating something vegan and GF. This summer my plumes ripened early and I needed to do something other than can (I have enough from previous years). I found a recipe for plum cake sans gluten, eggs and dairy and it worked perfectly.

Here is the recipe. It was pretty perfect but I needed to make some changes. I used a thick m,ilk (Silk high protein) and need to use a lighter one. I used Bob's Red Mill GF baking flour so maybe the two suggest might work better but Almond meal is expensive. Also, I discovered you have to push the plums into the cake to help blend the flavors.

It worked well but next time it will be better. My main concern was to get a GF mix that rose like normal flour.

What kinda flour did you use? Im loving teff lately!

The recipe called for rice flour and almond flour. Almond flour is very expensive so I used Bob's Red Mill GF baking flour. It also called for plant based milk and I used Silk high protein milk which is almost like cream. The dough was a bit heavy so next time I will use a thinner milk. Also,the plums were juicy but it didn't reach into the dough. Next time I will push the plum into the dough. For eggs it called for 2 TBL of ground Flax and 1/2 cup of warm water. This was my first attempt but I did makes note for the next time.

@JackPedigo This sounds so good. Could you post the exact recipe, I'd love to try it.
