Ingredients
  

For Caramelized Plums

  • 1 pound (500g) medium firm plums , pitted and cut into 1/2inch (1cm) thick wedges
  • 1/2 cup (100g) sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) water
  • 3 tbsp (45g) butter

Cinnamon Cake

  • 1/3 cup (75g) butter , room temperature
  • 1/3 cup (70g) sugar
  • Lemon zest of a lemon
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp (45g) sour cream
  • 1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp (8g) baking powder
  • 1 1/4 cup (160g) flour
  • 1/4 tsp (1g) salt
  • 1 tsp (3g) ground cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Prepare the caramel. Place the sugar and water in a medium heavy bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat, and cook without stirring until sugar dissolves and gets a caramel color.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and add the butter. Pour the caramel into a 8 inch (20cm) pan. If you use a springform pan place the pan over a tray in case some caramel leaks out.
  • Arrange the plum wedges in the caramel and set aside until you prepare the batter.
  • Prepare the batter. In a medium bowl whisk the flour with baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside until ready to use.
  • In a large mixing bowl rub sugar and lemon zest together to release oil. Add butter and mix until creamy. Incorporate eggs one at a time. Add sour cream and vanilla extract and mix to combine.
  • With the mixer on low gradually incorporate the flour mixture.
  • Pour batter over the plum wedges on the pan.
  • Bake for about 40-50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes, and then invert onto a serving platter.
  • Serve as is or with a good dollop of ice cream or cream on top.
