Plum Cake

This recipe doesn't use many plums, but it is very tasty.


8oz self-raising flour
1tsp ground cinnamon (or you could use mixed spice if you prefer)
3 1/2oz butter or margarine
2oz sultanas
2oz soft brown sugar plus 2tblsp for the topping
2 large eggs
4tblsp golden syrup
8oz plums, stoned and chopped

So, firstly preheat oven to 160C/325F /Gas 3. Then grease and line an 8 inch square cake tin.

Rub the butter and the flour together with half the cinnamon until you have a fine breadcrumb mixture. Add the sultanas and sugar and stir together.

Beat the eggs and golden syrup together in a separate bowl and then add the plums, stir and then add to the flour mixture. Mix together and then transfer to your cake tin.

Mix the 2tblsp of reserved sugar with the remaining cinnamon and then sprinkle over the top of the cake mixture.

Place in the centre of the oven for about 40-45 mins. It should be risen and just firm to the touch when cooked.

Leave to cool in the tin for a few minutes then cut into squares and enjoy.
