➡️ Homemade cake recipes topped with meringue gained very much in popularity in recent years despite their old-fashioned character. For this reason, I created this fresh plum cake recipe, which is based on a classic homemade cake and an Italian meringue recipe.
➡️ Making this plum cake with meringue is really simple. The most important secret to getting a fluffy cake texture is to combine by hand the egg whites and dough base.
