Plum Pudding Cake

My sister and I have a lot of plums laying around. I personally got a little overzealous while picking. (I do that all the time. I love to pick, hate to process! Haha!) Anyway, she found this recipe on (go to her site and see the lovely pic!)  It is SSSOOOO delish. It makes the house smell like Christmas and then eating it is a real treat. If you remember plum pudding from childhood this is a fantastic version! Everyone in my family loved it. Even my picky one.

Yield: 9 servings
1 cup all-purpose or cake flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons oil
2 cups washed and halved plums (pits removed, too!)
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup boiling water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
2. Beat in the milk and oil. Spread mixture in an ungreased 8x8-inch baking dish. Layer the halved plums on top.
3. Whisk together the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the plum-topped batter. Pour the boiling water over everything!
4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, until cake is browned on top. (The top layer should test done with a fork with only a few crumbs, if you're unsure.)
Serve warm or cold. Perfect with ice cream or all by itself! :)

I doubled this and put in a 9x13. It cooked in exactly 1 hour and was perfect. (my sis did the same thing and had same results)
