This is a slightly altered version of a recipe I got from a fitness magazine. It is a dense cake, very different and yummy! Using the light ingredients I specified, it's relatively guilt-free.

My family really loved this cake! It came out so pretty to! It has a lot of flavor and is moist...hard to believe this was homemade and not out of a box! Thanks for sharing it, my neighbor gave us a lot of plums from his tree!

I made this for dessert and it was a big hit! To be honest, I decided that guilt wasn't going to worry me so I used sugar and ordinary buttermilk. I also cooked it for a little longer - 42 minutes. We had it with icecream or cream and it was just lovely. Thank you!
