Plum Cake with Ice Cream

To help inspire us, supperclub owner Uyen Luu (www.uyenluu.com) has hosted an exclusive blogger event, showcasing some of her favourite autumn recipes which have all been cooked on her brand new Leisure Cuisinemaster.

Ingredients

Serves 6

  • 200g butter at room temperature
  • 120g caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 250g plain flour
  • 5 plums, destoned and cut into sixths

Method

Line a shallow baking tin with greaseproof paper, and preheat the oven to 180C.

In a stand mixer cream together the butter and sugar until it turns pale and fluffy, about two minutes.

Add the eggs to the sugar and butter one at a time, beating well between each addition.

Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, and mix slowly until just combined, this forms quite a stiff mixture.

Using a spatula spread the cake batter over the tin; gently press the fruit into the top of the sponge.

Bake for 40 minutes until the sponge has turned golden brown on top and an inserted skewer comes out clean.

Leave to cool to room temperature in the tray, then slice and serve.
