I’m not saying anything new, here… I just can’t say no to a good old home-made breakfast, usually based on cakes and similar, that are easy and quick to make (unlike cookies), and their softness and aroma could last for an entire week.

For breakfast I prefer those soft, fluffy cakes, perfect to sop up in the morning (and/or in the afternoon) coffee ; when they also are light, ’cause made with yogurt or oil (or both), well, how could I say no?

So, as soon as I laid my hands on the first oranges of the season, already incredibly juicy, I remembered this plum cake I saw a lot of time ago on Zucchero e Sale, and I certainly didn’t pull back.

Well, now you don’t have the hot weather excuse to not turn on your oven! So, heat it up!

And have a great week!
