What is your favorite dessert? Cookies? Chocolate? Candies? Or maybe cakes? If you’re a bit like me, your reply would be “everything that is sweet”! I really like sweet things. And I also really enjoy cooking them. My favorite time of the year for baking cakes is summer. Why? Because in summer you can find so many delicious fruits and berries that you simply have to bake a cake. And that’s what I did when the plum season started! I made this delicious vegan bundt cake with plums and chocolate chips!
In general plums are not the typical fruit that you can find in many sweet things. For example, if you think about other fruits or berries like strawberries – they’re everywhere! There are strawberry yoghurts, cakes, cookies, ice cream etc. But plums are somehow not that popular. Even though they have a very good flavor. That kind of flavor that is perfect for this vegan bundt cake with plums and chocolate chips. Because the slightly sour flavor of the plums goes perfectly together with the sweetness of the chocolate. You can use this cake in many different ways. Serve it as a delicious dessert accompanied with a cup of coffee or tea to your guests. Or enjoy a slice of it as a quick snack in a busy day. Or eat it for breakfast with a cup of plant-based milk.
Why choose red plums
First and foremost, red plums are very tasty. I definitely prefer them over the blue ones because the red plums are less sour and more juicy. Of course, if you prefer blue or yellow plums, feel free to use them in this recipe. But at the moment let’s stick to the red plums. Plums in general contain many valuable nutrients. They are high in dietary fiber, which is good for our digestion. Probably you have heard that plums can help in case you are constipated. Well, don’t worry, this vegan bundt cake with plums and chocolate chips won’t make you run to the bathroom. The constipation is mostly relieved by dried plums or prunes, but in this recipe I’m using fresh plums. So, don’t worry! Foods with high fiber content are important for our body and wellbeing!
Apart from fiber, red plums are also very rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants help our body fight inflammation and protect our cells from damage. Besides that, red plums are a low-calorie snack. So, don’t blame yourself if some plum pieces don’t go in the dough but end up in your mouth! There’s nothing bad in snacking on healthy food. And besides that, I mean, you are cooking, so you deserve a treat! Red plums contain also several vitamins and minerals. For example, they contain a bit of vitamins C, A and K, and such minerals as potassium, copper and manganese. So, in short – red plums are great not only for a vegan bundt cake, but also as an everyday snack. In case you’re searching for another oven baked snack, try my ginger and mango oatmeal mini muffins.

Also all the other ingredients of this vegan bundt cake with plums and chocolate chips are very simple. I’m quite sure that if not all, then most of them are already in your kitchen cabinet. You are free to choose which type of flour and sweetener to use. If you want to make this vegan bundt cake a bit healthier, choose the wholegrain flour. The same goes for sweetener – if you can, always avoid white sugar. Instead choose a natural sweetener like stevia or coconut or raw cane sugar. Up to your choice is also the type of cake form you’ll use. If you don’t have the special bundt cake form, you can bake it also in the regular cake form. Just pay attention to the cooking time and temperature to avoid that the middle of the cake remains liquid.

It’s so delicious that you might eat it super-fast by making your mouth dirty with crumbs! Just like small babies when they make themselves and everything around them dirty when they eat. Or to be more precise – just like my baby bunny Specky! While I was preparing this bundt cake, he got dirty and created a big mess with his cauliflower snack. But of course, it’s impossible to get angry at that chubby cheeked bunny!
