Plum Cake

The summer plums are  in the stores so it is time to start baking with them (before they get eaten out of hand). I have several plum recipes I use, this is one of the simplest. Easy to make, ingredients that you have on hand and can be eaten cold or warm. Also a 8 inch pan works for our small family.

Plum Cake
2 large eggs, room temp
½ cup sugar divided
¾ cup flour
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼c cup vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla
3  plums, sliced
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Grease an 8X8 inch pan and line with parchment paper (leaving excess paper over the sides).
Place eggs and ¼ cup of sugar in a mixer attached with a paddle and mix on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Once eggs and sugar are pale and  fluffy, turn mixer  to medium and slowly add oil and vanilla. Turn mixer to low and add flour mixture. Mix until incorporated (being careful not to over mix).
Fold plum slices into batter and pour into prepared pan. Bake about 5 minutes, open oven and quickly sprinkle the other ¼ cup of sugar (scant) over the top of cake.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes total or until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Allow to cool in pan.  

 Cool on wire rack and eat warm or room temperature
