This was given to me from a dear friend. She had served this at an event and I asked for the recipe - it was amazing and presents so beautifully. Perfect for impressing guests!

Best made when FRESH plums are in season.

This cake cooks long and slow. Delicious and moist with a hint of cinnamon and dotted with flaked almonds through out and surprisingly easy to make. Serve warm or at room temp. with lashings of freshly whipped cream!

How to Make Not Betty's Upside Down Plum Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 275oF/140oC.
    Grease a 9 inch (22cm) deep round cake tin and line the base well with baking paper.
  2. Sprinkle the 1 tablespoon of brown sugar over the base of the tin. Arrange the plums over the top. Set aside while you make the cake batter.
  3. In a large bowl beat the sugar, extra brown sugar and the butter together. Add in the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition and the vanilla.
  4. Sift the flours, bicarb and cinnamon. Fold into the buttery mix with the almonds and milk until just mixed - don't over mix!
  5. Carefully arrange spoonfuls over the plums and carefully use a fork or a dessert spoon to spread evenly over the plums. The mixture will be quite thick - this is right.
  6. Bake in the prepared oven for 80 minutes. Test with a skewer, it should come out clean. Cool in the tin for a full 15 minutes. Carefully turn out onto a serving plate. Cool on the plate until you are ready to serve.
