Eggless plum walnut bread-from chef in you

I got some plums recently which were a bit firm and not too juicy and somehow I did not feel like eating them as such. But the colour was so beautiful and I wanted to use them in a dessert. I was thinking of a crumble and when browsing Dk's blog , I saw a nice recipe of plum pecan bread. So this was inspired from her recipe and I adjusted the ingredients according to whatever was available with me.
The cake turned out great and I was really satisfied with the healthy, eggless , low fat,quick recipe and could have it without any guilt.

Pilsbury multigrain atta- 2 cups
Plum- 5 (pitted and chopped)-yielding about 1 1/2 cup of chopped plums.
Walnuts- 1/2cup slightly crushed
Brown sugar-3/4 cup
Baking powder- 1tsp
Baking soda- a pinch
Yogurt- 3/4 cup
Vegetable oil- 1/2 cup
Cinnamon sugar- 1tsp


Combine the sugar and oil and mix well. Next combine the atta flour with baking powder and baking soda. Now combine both the mixtures and add yogurt and mix well to form a thick batter. Fold in the plums. Pour the batter in a loaf pan.
Now place the walnuts on the batter carefully. Sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on the top.
Bake this in a preheated oven at 180c for around 40 minutes. Test if the cake is done by inserting a knife or skewer in the center of the cake.
Cool the cake properly. Invert it on a plate. Immediately reinvert it and cut in slices.
