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.
