COMMENTS: A fresh plum cake warm from the oven, a pot of freshly brewed hot coffee...these are the makings of a great low-fat breakfast. The base for the cake is a biscuit dough with yeast added for lightness. Nonfat milk is stirred into the flour mixture along with some butter for flavor and tenderness.
