About Recipe:Wholewheat Jaggery Almond plum cake !!! I love fruits in my dessert - specially the tart berries and plums which counter the sweetness of the cake and gives our taste buds the 360° experience. This almond plum cake was just that. I had a lot of fun arranging the plums too - it looked as pretty before going to the oven as it looked after it got out all cooked.

- 1 cup whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting pan prep
