These little treats in Italy would be called “Plumcake”, as the original recipe comes from the traditional English fruitcake, but their evolution has got nothing to do with plums or fruit, and they are now simply some extra soft, sweet sponge loaves or mini loaves, whilst retaining the confusing fruity name.
After this fun fact, I can tell you that these mini loaves are perfect for little hands. They do have sugar so they aren’t really an everyday treat, but a brilliant idea for a weekend afternoon snack (or “merenda”) that you can easily bring with you wherever you are going. They are also quite versatile, as you can have them in any flavour you want just by choosing a different yogurt. Can be dairy-free!
