Spiced Plum Cake

Spiced Plum Cake

Juicy, sweet plums rest atop a delicate sponge in this spiced plum cake. A perfect way to use plums which are a little hard or lacking in juiciness.


  • 190 g Butter
  • 190 g Caster Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 190 g Plain Flour
  • 2 tsps Baking Powder
  • 3 tsps Cinnamon
  • 6 Plums


  • Start off by preheating your oven to 190 degrees Celsius. Cream together the butter and sugar and then whisk together the eggs.
  • Beat in the eggs bit by bit until completely combined and grease and flour a 20cm cake tin.
  • Cut the plums in half and remove the pits. Arrange the plum halves flat side down in the bottom of the tin.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into the batter and fold in gently. Transfer the batter into the tin, covering the plums, and then place into the preheated oven.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes. Before removing, check the cake is completely baked in the centre by sticking it wth a skewer and ensuring it comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven when ready and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to allow to finish cooling.
