admin's picture
  Firm ripe plums 3⁄4 Pound (Red Skinned, About 2 Inch Wide, Three Pieces)
  Butter/Margarine 1⁄4 Pound (1/2 Cup)
  All purpose flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Almond paste 8 Ounce (3/4 Cup)
  Eggs 2 Large
  Powdered sugar 1 Tablespoon

1. Rinse plums, pit, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices.
2. Butter and flour a 10-inch cake pan that has a removable rim.
3. In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup butter, granulated sugar, and almond paste. With a mixer at high speed, beat until mixture is blended, about 2 minutes. Add eggs and beat until fluffy, 2 or 3 minutes. Add 1 cup flour, stir to mix, then beat until well blended.
4. Scrape batter into cake pan. Arrange plum slices evenly on batter.
5. Bake in a 350° oven until cake just begins to pull from pan sides and is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
6. Cool in pan at least 10 minutes. Run a thin-bladed knife between cake and pan rim; remove rim. Dust cake with powdered sugar. Cut into wedges.
