Makes one 9 inch cake
4 plums, not too ripe, pitted and sliced
4 Tablespoons Unsalted butter
¾ cup light brown sugar
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup Almond Four
2 teaspoon Baking powder
¾ cup Granulated Sugar
½ cup Unsalted Butter, room temperature
3 Large Eggs
2/3 cup Buttermilk
1 ½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
In a small saucepan melt butter and sugar together just until boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. In the meantime, mix together cake batter.
Sift together flour, almond flour, and baking powder. Set aside. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add together the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated. Alternate the dry ingredients with the buttermilk being careful not to over mix.
Place plums carefully in a circular pattern in a buttered pan with parchment ring. Pour butter /sugar mixture over them carefully so as not to move the fruit. Add the cake batter and bake for 45-50 minutes until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cool for 5 minutes, then invert cake onto a serving dish. If you let it cool too much fruit will stick to bottom of pan.
