This recipes works equally well with other stone fruit like peaches or nectarines. I bet it would taste good with pears but I haven't tried that yet.


Serves: 8 

  • 1/2 cup (60g) wholemeal flour
  • 1/2 cup (60g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup (170g) white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar, or as needed
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spray a 20x30cm baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together the wholemeal flour, plain flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cream together the butter and 3/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl; mix in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients in two additions, mixing gently between each addition until the batter is just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish and arrange the sliced plums over the batter. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 tablespoon sugar and dust with cinnamon.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes.
