Recipe for Kenwood by Jordan Rondel


  • 6 small ripe plums, pitted and halved
  • 150g butter, softened
  • 150g soft brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 200g ground almonds
  • 35g buckwheat flour (or plain flour if you prefer)


  • Preheat the oven to 175ºC fan bake. Grease and flour a 12-hole friand tray very well.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar until pale, light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla and then the eggs, one at a time.
  • Mix in the ground almonds and flour until combined, do not over mix.
  • Evenly divide the batter between the friand holes and press a plum half into each one. Sprinkle each with some un-toasted coconut flakes.
  • Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until golden in colour and springy to the touch.
  • Leaves the cakes to cool in the tray for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
  • Once completely cool, dust with some icing sugar.

Tip: Serve with some Greek yogurt, mascarpone or whipped cream. Store in a cool, dry place in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
