  1. Sift flour and baking powder, set aside. In a bowl whisk eggs, oil and milk with Parmesan. Agg this mixture to flour avoiding lumps.
  2. Add feta cubes, half the pine nuts ( you can toast them a little in a pan before if you like) and spoonfuls of pesto. Do not overmix as pesto must creates blots.

Recipe Notes

You can freeze this plum- cake, just few minutes in the oven after defrosting to have it as good as fresh.
