Spiced Plum Traybake

I picked some lovely ripe plums from the tree in my garden this weekend and decided to make this delicious cake as I was asked if I had a traybake plum cake on Facebook a few days ago.


It's a lovely sticky spicy cake with juicy plums and very easy to make.



Perfect with a cup of tea or warm with some cream or custard. The cake is really light and fluffy and one piece is never enough!

Start by pre-heating the oven to 180 degrees centigrade (160 fan) then line and grease a 9" x 9" (23cm x 23cm) square tin with baking parchment.



In a medium sized pan put the butter, soft light brown sugar and golden syrup.



On a medium heat stir until everything is melted and the sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool for 10-15 minutes.



In a large bowl put the flour, baking powder, mixed spice, cinnamon and ginger.



Then add the sugar mixture, milk and eggs to the flour.



Beat together until you have a smooth batter.



Pour the batter into the prepared tin.



Cut the plums into quarters and remove the stones.



Scatter the plums evenly over the top of the cake batter.



Bake for 35 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
