How to Make DERBY DAY PLUM CAKE

Step-by-Step

  1. PRE HEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES. GREASE BOTTOM OF 8 INCH CAKE PAN WITH A REMOVABLE BOTTOM, THEN LINE WITH PARCHMENT PAPER. (GREASING HELPS PAPER STICK)
  2. BEAT EGGS IN A MIXING BOWL WITH 3/4 CUP OF SUGAR AND VANILLA UNTILL PALE AND FLUFFY. MIX IN FLOUR AND BAKING POWDER. WHISK IN MELTED BUTTER AND MILK. DON'T OVER MIX.
  3. PUT HAILF THE PLUM SKIN SIDE DOWN IN A NICE RING ON BOTTOM OF PAN, USE AS MANY AS NEEDED TO COVER BOTTOM BUT NOT TO TIGHTLY AS YOU WANT BATTER TO GET BETWEEN THEM AND FORM THE BASE OF THE CAKE.
  4. SCOOP ALL OF THE BATTER OVER TOP OF PLUMS. ARRANGE REST OF PLUMS IN NEAT SLICES OVER TOP OF CAKE. SOME WILL SINK INTO CAKE BUT MOST WILL STAY ON TOP SO ARRANGE PREETY. THE PLUMS WILL SHRINK SO IT IS OK TO USE MORE ON TOP THAN NOT ENOUGH.
  5. SPRINLE THE 2 TBLS. OF SUGAR OVER THE TOP OF CAKE. THIS GIVES IT THAT KINDA CRISP YUMMY TOP QUALITY.
  6. PLACE CAKE ON BAKING SHE AND PLACE IN OVEN. BAKE 1 HOUR OR UNTIL TOP IS A PRETTY GOLEN BROW AND A SKEWER COMES OUT CLEAN. THE PLUMS WILL HAVE CARAMELISED A BIT.
  7. TAKE OUT OF OVEN AND ALLOW TO COOL A FEW MINUTES BEFORE YOU REMOVE IT. BE CAREFUL OF ANY SYRUPY LIQUID THAT MAY HAVE FORMED. SERVE WITH WHIPPED CREAM OR ICE CREAM.
