In Hungary there is a prune plum tree in everyone's garden. Recently I found these smaller, blue-purple plums under the name "Italian plums" in the supermarket. Well, I purchased a handful and made this delicious cake with them. This dessert is a kind of like a cake version of the Hungarian plum dumplings.
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1.5 cup sugar
0.5 cup butter
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon + 2 tbsp sugar
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-inch baking shape with parchment paper.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add the eggs, then the dry ingredients. Combine.
Spoon batter into baking shape. Cut plums in half, place on top of cake batter with the cut side down.
Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon mixture on plums, as well as the lemon juice. Bake for 40 minutes. Cool on rack.
