These cakes are definitely one of life’s little pleasures. We especially enjoy them alongside a warm little latte! They are soft, make people happy, and really you can’t ask for anything better than a hot coffee and a slice of cake!
Here is his recipe for oatmeal, prune and ginger cake!

60 g brown sugar
75 g honey
2 g freshly ground ginger

75 g oatmeal
105 g flour
3 g baking powder
75 g sliced prunes
The prunes can be substituted for another fruit, such as apples or peaches, for example.
Toppings: oatmeal, brown sugar, sliced almonds, buckwheat seeds (to taste)
Butter and flour the pan(s) or use paper or silicone liners.
Cream the butter, sugar, salt, brown sugar, ginger, and honey for a full 2 minutes until white.
Add the eggs 1 at a time, mixing between adding each egg.
Add the oatmeal, flour, and baking powder. Mix for 1 full minute.
Add the pieces of the fruit of your choice, mixing gently with a spatula to avoid damaging them.

Preheat the oven to 340 °F.
Sprinkle on oatmeal, brown sugar, and sliced almonds to decorate the cake (optional).
Bake for 35 to 50 minutes, depending on the pan. The cake is cooked when it springs back when touched or when a knife is inserted into the centre and comes out clean.
