Plum and Cinnamon Upside Down Cake
This upside down cake makes the most of the intense flavour and colour of Wattie’s Black Doris Plums, beautifully displayed on top when turned out. We love to serve it with Greek-style yoghurt, which goes perfectly with the flavours of the cinnamon and plums.
How to Cook
- Pre-heat the oven to 180°. Grease and line the base of a 23cm cake tin with baking paper.
- Drain Wattie’s Black Doris Plums. Carefully cut the plums in half and remove the stones. Place the plums cut side down into the base of the cake tin.
- In a mixing bowl beat the butter, brown sugar and vanilla extract until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Sift the flour, baking powder and Gregg's Ground Cinnamon into the creamed mixture and carefully fold in with the yoghurt.
- Spoon mixture over the plums. Bake for 40 minutes or until cooked. A skewer inserted into the middle of the cake should be clean when removed. Stand in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a cake rack to cool. Serve with Greek-style yoghurt or whipped cream.
* Keep Clean Tip:
If using a loose bottom cake tin stand the tin on a baking sheet as some of the plum juice may leak out of the tin while baking.
