2 cups whole wheat flour2 teaspoons baking powder5-6  plums1 ripe bananaSugar 6 to 10 tsp3/4 cup melted butter1/4 cup milkAlmonds - cut about 1/2 a cup

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Grease and flour the baking pan.Sift together the flour, baking powder  into a large bowl. Pour in the melted butter and mix well.Meanwhile,using a blender/mixer,blend the plums, banana and sugar with milk. Make a well in the center and pour in the blended puree.Now add in the cut almonds.(optional)Mix well and pour onto the greased pan.Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes, or until a fork inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow it to cool and Enjoy!
