Made my version of a German Plum cake.
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, soft
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Beat sugar and butter til light and fluffy, add eggs. Beat well.
Add dry ingredients , mix , add in milk and almond extract.. Mix together pour into 9 inch greased pan..
Top with 3 red plums cut in wedges,sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon
Bake at 375 for 35 to 40 minutes....
This is not the prettiest cake with the plums sinking into the cake but it makes up for looks in flavour.Added a sprinkle of icing sugar for the picture and a plum slice to top.Wasn't going to blog about this cake but after tasting decided to share. The cake is so easy to make and turned out moist, light, full of flavour with the almond extract and cinnamon complimenting each other. Perfect partner for an afternoon cup of tea.
