Poppyseed Plum Tea Cakes

What a coincidence! I've had these babies in my head for such a long time, it took me by surprise when Helen from Tartelette posted a tea cake recipe before I could get mine out. I believe that great minds think alike, but I've sure got a lot to learn from her.

I really do recommend a big cup of tea with these little ones. The experience shifts then, from a snack to a moment of relaxation. And we all need one of those every once in a while.

Poppyseed Plum Tea Cakes
Deliciously moist and subtly sweet, it's hard to believe that these tea cakes are free of animal products as well as gluten. Makes 12-16.

  • ½ cup sorghum flour
  • ¼ cup amaranth flour
  • ¼ cup hazelnut flour
  • 1 tsp. poppyseeds
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. xanthan gum
  • dash of sea salt
  • ¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ¼ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3T fresh plum juice
  • 2-3 T agave nectar
  • 2 tsp. hazelnut oil
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1-2 fresh plums

Mix together the dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls, except for the poppyseeds and fresh plums, with the dry in a larger bowl. Gradually add the wet to the dry, stirring well. Add the poppyseeds and continue to stir. Pour the batter into a lightly greased mini muffin pan, filling each hole about 2/3 of the way full. Top each with a slice of fresh plum and bake at 350° F for 20-25 minutes. Test with a toothpick to insure that they are done. Enjoy for breakfast or snack, with tea or coffee.

I've been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.
In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be
much more useful than ever before.
