Plum cake with coconut and meringue topping

20 Aug

Not a complete success but not a complete failure either: this plum cake was loosely based on a recipe I had found in a magazine. The cake base turned out a bit too hard and it looks a bit messy but it tastes pretty good. I love the coconut taste and the meringue topping. ❤ Do you like plum cake? Do you know any good recipes?

A tasty ‘Thank you’

Have you ever seen a quail? I was able to rescue one of these cute birds. It was surrounded by enemies (our cat and the neighbour’s dog). A ring on its food signalled that it was domesticated and couldn’t survive on its own in the wilderness.

With the support of my parents and the neighbour, I found its owner. He thanked me with quail eggs. They can either be boiled for 5 minutes or eaten as the sunny side up variety. They taste like normal chicken eggs but look much cuter.
