The berries and plums are appearing in the grocery stores now and this is an oldy but goodie. Daughter Suzanne loves this one and so do we.
- 1 1/4 cups flour
- 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 4 black plums, pitted and thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup blueberries, washed and drained.
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 inch cake pan. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In the greased pan, combine 3 tbsp. butter and brown sugar and set in the oven until the butter has melted and begins to bubble. Set aside.
In a large electric mixer, cream together the butter and white sugar until really light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and stir in the vanilla. Add the flour mixture, alternatively with the milk just until incorporated.
Arrange the plum slices around the edges of the cake pan. In the centre of the pan add the blueberries. Carefully add the cake batter, covering the fruit completely being sure not to dislodge any. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool at least 15 minutes before serving with a generous dollop of freshly whipped cream.
Oh yeah it is yummy.
