Ingredients

  • 1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 4 cups sliced unpeeled firm-ripe plums (about 1 1/4 lb.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. In a large bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat butter and 1 cup sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel.
  2. 2. In a small bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Stir half the flour mixture into the butter mixture, then add the milk, followed by the remaining flour mixture; stir just until incorporated. Scrape batter into a buttered and floured 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking pan and spread level. Overlap plum slices in rows or concentric circles over batter. In a small bowl, mix remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over plums.
  3. 3. Bake in a 325° regular or convection oven until a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 45 to 50 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
