Celebrate September with juicy plums beautifully presented in this moist upside down cake. Enjoy with your morning coffee or with a dollop of cream for a tasty dessert.
It is not advisable to use a springform or loose-bottomed cake tin for upside down cakes as they can be prone to leaking.
To freeze, wrap the cake up tightly in tin foil and place in the freezer. When ready to eat, allow about 8 hours to defrost to room temperature.
This cake was so awesome. When we made one, it literally knocked my grandmother out with its intense flavor and velvety cakeness. They say grandma will pull through... Enjoy at your own risk. - 08 Sep 2014 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Very easy, and a great use for the plums just ripening now. - 25 Aug 2016 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
A co-worker brought this cake in today for us. What a treat for Monday morning! The plum topping was slightly caramelised and delicious. The cake was dense and buttery, which is just what I like. - 08 Sep 2014 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
