If you have some ume plums left over from a batch of homemade umeshu, turn them into a delicious cake. It's perfect with black or green tea.
I had leftover plums from homemade umeshu, so I added it into a pound cake. Similar with brandy soaked pound cakes, pouring umeshu over the finished cake made it fragrant.
If you coat the chopped plums with flour in Step 4, the pieces won't sink to the bottom. In our oven, I baked for 40 minutes at 340°F/170°C, but adjust the temperature and baking time to your oven.
Enjoy Japanese food around the world.
