Cinnamon and Plum Cake Recipe

Yesterday, my sister delivered me a huge box full of plums, freshly picked from the tree.  There are only so many plums that you can eat in one sitting, so I decided to freeze some for crumbles and then experiment in the kitchen to make some lovely, autumnal baked treats using plums.

Autumn

Firstly, I decided to make a basic cinnamon flavoured sponge cake topped with halved plums.  The rich, lightly spiced cake contrasted beautifully with the tart, juicy fruit.  It is a real taste of autumn! Perfect served warm with ice cream or with custard.  It went down a storm with the kids and Ian, which is always a good sign!

It is a very easy recipe and a great way to use up plums, which are ripe and ready to pick at this time of year. I still have loads left so I'm off to the kitchen to come up with some more ways to cook with plums!
