( SERVES 8 )
- Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 24cm springform tin.
- Halve the plums, remove the stones then slice. Toss 500g of the plums in a cup of the sugar then set aside.
- Cream the remaining sugar with the butter until pale. Add the eggs one at a time while beating.
- Gently stir in the milk, lemon zest and vanilla. Sift the flour and baking powder together then fold into the mixture.
- Spoon into the tin and bake for 35 minutes. Test with a skewer - if it is clean when removed, the cake is ready.
