Serves: 9-inch cake
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup {1 stick} unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 4-5 plums
  • cinnamon and sugar for topping, as needed
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, then beat in the vanilla.
  3. Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt, and beat until combined.
  4. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform cake pan, and pour in the batter.
  5. Thinly slice your plums, and arrange them on top of the cake. Squeeze the lemon juice on top, then sprinkle a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar on top of the plums.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until cake is fluffy and golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean {disregarding the plum juice}. Let cool slightly and enjoy!
