Plum Cake Recipe

Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 6-8 servings

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).

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 6 plums, halved
  • lemon juice
  • cinnamon sugar
  1. Cream 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.
