This torte is similar to the Stone Teacake that I have baked recently and since I have some plums left, I decided to make it again. It's so delicious I can't get enough of it! This time I based the cake recipe on Cathy's Plum Torte, except I do not have so many plums to decorate mine, so I have to slice the plums into wedges instead of halves. The cinnamon sugar sprinkled liberally on the surface makes this cake so fragrant!
See how fluffy the texture is!
The recipe below is for my own record as I have converted it to metric measurement and made some adjustments:-
115g butter, softened100g sugar
120g AP flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 plums cut into wedges
1 teaspoon cinnamon mixed with a tablespoon of brown sugar
Arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat to 170 deg C.
Cream the butter and sugar. Add flour, baking powder, eggs and salt and beat to mix well. Spoon the batter into a greased 9 inch pie pan. (Cathy used an ungreased spring form pan). Cover the top with plum wedges. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top.
Bake for 40-50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool.
