I added triple the amount of plums, cut them very thin and pressed them into the batter, skin-side up. The addition was a big hit. Be sure to add a little extra lemon zest. The cake is very subtle on its own. A

The baking time has to be wrong on this recipe - it should not take over an hour to bake a small cake. I baked it for the full time and it was very dry. So I used it the next night to make bread pudding, and it shined in that. Otherwise the cake was great tasting.
Awesome cake and recipe. Thank you for the recipe. I will try this plum cake for my daughter. She is a fan of plum cake, so I always order cakes from Monginis online cake shop. They provide online delivery at affordable rates.
I just saw that they changed the pan size in the online version of this recipe (I was going from the magazine). Guess I should've checked here before baking! :(
Aren't most traditional cake pans 9-inch? I dug up an 8-inch pan and the cake overflowed, making a mess of my oven. The edges have burned (even with the foil) and as I write this, the center is still raw. I usually don't have these problems with MS recipes...this one surprised me!

It was an interesting taste. I enjoyed it but the cake was a bit try. I would reduce the total cooking time by about 10 minutes. Because of this bad first impression, I probably will not make again.

I made this cake last summer and it was a huge hit, so delicious.
I didn't have fresh plums so I used some plum jam my daughter made.
Is as delicious as it looks.
A recipe to be shared and kept.
I have made this plum cake several times and have gotten nothing but compliments on it. It is especially nice in the summer months when good fresh juicy plums are available. I followed the recipe exactly except I used more plums as the ones I had were on the small size. (used 5 to 6 each time I made it). I think this would be good with any summer fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, yummy peaches, etc. Try this simple to make cake and I am sure you will like it.
there is not much to say except that this recipe is simply delicious and very easy to make. this recipe is one to keep forever. you must try it.
