A super-delicious cake, which is a great way of using plums when in-season. A buttery sponge cake is topped with plums, cinnamon and sugar, before being baked to perfection. Serve with cream or whipped cream.

This is a pretty and versatile cake. The plums and blueberries can be replaced with peaches. You can also omit the blueberries, which makes a delicious plum cake!

I had sliced apples leftovers, and I decided to assemble a fast cake that would be good for breakfast. Came out pretty well!

Basically an almond sponge base, with a syrupy plum topping with orange zest and juice. If you have a few over-ripe plums, this is a great idea to use them up. This is is just so tasty and scrummy for a snack or after dinner. Enjoy on its own. Very easy to make, but will take up time getting your plum topping the right thickness.
