● If you bake the Plum Cake slowly at a lower temperature like 160° C to 170° C so that it becomes really flavorful and the texture comes out just right.

● If you’re using normal sugar i.e. white sugar, and you’re not using molasses or treacle, you can caramelize the sugar and add to the recipe. In a sauce pan add the sugar and heat till it starts to melt and get a nice brown colour but do not over caramelized the sugar. Turn off and add 1-2 tbsp water and stir well and let it cool down completely before using in the recipe.

● Try to chop the dry fruits and nuts into equal-sized pieces.
