  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter (I used margarine, you could also use a mild flavored oil)
  • cup sugar (you could use coconut sugar)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • ½ cup of Greek yogurt (unsweetened) or sour cream (I used non-dairy Greek yogurt)
  • cups chopped pitted fresh plums about 9 small
  • topping:
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with baking spray (or grease with butter).
  • In a small bowl, toss the plums in the 1 tablespoon of flour to coat; set aside.
  • In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a mixing bowl with electric mixer (or in another large bowl, by hand), beat margarine (or oil or butter), sugar and vanilla extract medium-high speed until well blended.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add in the grated lemon zest. Mix in the yogurt and combine.
  • Beating at low speed, add the flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat just until combined.
  • If you find the batter too thick, add a 1-2 tablespoons of milk (or for the dairy free: use unsweetened almond or whatever your favorite nut milk is). Start with 1 tablespoon and see how the texture is. It is a thicker batter.
  • Gently fold in the plums until combined.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar topping on top of the batter.
  • Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Lower the heat to 325 and bake for about another 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs clinging.
  • Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove plum bread from pan. Slice and enjoy!
