About this recipe: This is my favorite plum cake recipe, because it can be prepared quickly and you only need a few ingredients.
I made this today. We have just had a large portion with custard. It was very easy and very tasty. My one concern with this recipe is that it suggests using a 26cm tin. IMO this is way to big for this small amount of mixture . Having put my mixture a 26cm tin I saw how thin it was I then greased a 20cm tin and scraped the mixture into that. I was surprised it actually rose properly after messing it about. It finished up about 1" thick and well cooked. I really think you should change the tin size recommended in the recipe to a 20cm tin. I will make it again. - 14 Feb 2015
Delicious as a cake or for pudding with cream/custard/ice cream. Really enjoyed this and have already made it a second time, using ginger instead of cinnamon and topping with tinned pears.. Such any easy recipe to make. Will try with other fruits/spices. I sprinkled the top with Demerara sugar instead of caster for extra crunch. - 06 Jan 2015
