Plum Cake

This cake is incredibly easy to make, tasty, and looks really beautiful (and impressive, if that’s what you’re going for) when cooked. The plums soften & bleed into the batter as they cook and their tart flavor is a great contrast to the sweet buttery cake. You can also experiment with other fruits (nectarines, peaches, persimmons, maybe figs).

Instructions

  1. 1Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, then flour and baking powder. Pour in baking/pie dish. Place plum halves cut-side down in a circle pattern on top of the batter. Sprinkle with lemon juice and cinnamon sugar. Bake @ 350 degrees for approx 1 hour, or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean.
