I was not an Autumn lover, but in the past couple of years she tricked me little by little, and I think now it’s my favourite season.

How could I ignore her? In September we go on our beach holiday (the water is perfect, the weather is not so hot like in the summer days and it’s not crowded), the markets are full of fresh fruits and vegetables and nature’s colors are insanely beautiful.

Also Autumn reminds me of this particular dessert that my grandmother used to make for us- the  Plum Upside-Down Cake, a very easy and refreshing sweet, that you can enjoy next to a hot cup of tea on a chilly Autumn evening.

Enjoy!

Ingredients
  1. 500 g halved sugar plums, with stones removed
  2. 80 g brown sugar
  3. 4 eggs with the egg yolk separated from the whites
  4. a pinch of salt
  5. 4 Tbsp granulated sugar
  6. 1 tsp pure vanilla extract or 1 sachet vanilla sugar
  7. 4 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  8. a little butter for the cake pan
Instructions
  1. Use a cake pan, but if you want a bigger dessert you can use a larger pan and double the ingredients.
  2. Grease the pan with butter and preheat the oven to 200 C degrees.
  3. Mix the plums with the brown sugar, transfer in the pan and insert in the oven for 15 minutes.
  4. Beat the whites with a pinch of salt, add the granulated sugar and beat again until stiff.
  5. Add the vanilla extract, the egg yolks and mix.
  6. Add the flour and mix it with a spatula, slightly so that the mixture remains fluffy.
  7. Poure the mixture over the baked plums, reduce heat to 180 C and bake the cake about 30 minutes.
  8. Once it is baked flip it on a platter or a wooden board to let the plum juice moist the cake.
  9. Serve with crème fraîche or ice cream.
Notes
  1. You can use baking paper instead of butter.
  2. You can insert a toothpick in the middle of the cake and if it comes out clean, then it's done.
  3. This dessert is perfect with a hot cup of tea beside.
