Then I chanced upon this recipe via Sue's blog. I knew right away I would be making this on the weekend. I was so smitten with the colours of the cake; golden brown and yellow inside, red and dark purple on top. How gorgeous and very autumn like!
here. I skipped the raisins and cloves because I didn't have any in the pantry. To compensate, I went a bit nuts with the cinnamon because as far as I'm concerned,there's no such thing as too much cinnamon.
4 plums, halved and de-stoned
1 cup self raising flour
150g of butter, softened
1 cup raw brown sugar
Generous sprinkling of ground cinnamon
1 pinch of salt
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius
2. Line a loaf tin with baking paper.
3. Place the halved plums cut side down on the bottom of the tin.
4. Put the flour, butter, sugar, eggs, salt and cinnamon into the food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a thick smooth consistency.
5. Spoon the mixture over the plums, smoothing over the top to ensure the tin is evenly filled.
6. Bake in oven for 40 minutes.
7. Allow to cool in the tin. Then place a wire cooling rack over the top of the tin and turn the cake out, upside down. Lift off the greaseproof paper carefully.
