This is a cozy family favorite usually made during the summer time when there are fresh plums available. However I think this would make a great holiday dessert because of all the cinnamon goodness. The plums can be substituted for other fruits, but the combination of sweet and tart work really well in this recipe.
Prep the plums by cutting them in half and tossing in some lemon juice.
For this recipe, you will need flour, butter, eggs, sugar, cinnamon and plums.
In a bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. I like to cut the tops of my baking powder into a straight edge so that I can get perfect teaspoons.
Cream together the butter and sugar.
Add the eggs and mix well.
Slowly add the flour into the butter mixture and mix well.
Pour the batter into the pan. You can butter and flour the pan or line it with some parchment paper.
Place the plums on top of the batter cut side down. Press down lightly.
Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on top of the plums and batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for an hour or until a toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy on its own or with some ice cream.
