Upside-Down Plum Cake

Presented by: Paula Nemzek from KCTS 9 Cooks

Serves 6


  • 1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 6-8 firm plums, pitted and sliced
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (optional)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a greased 9-inch round cake pan, combine 3 tablespoons butter and brown sugar. Place pan in the preheated oven until butter melts and starts to bubble. Set aside.

In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together 1/3 cup butter and granulated sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg, then add vanilla. Beat in the dry ingredients alternately with milk, and mix just until incorporated.

Arrange plum slices in two rings around the edges of the prepared pan, overlapping slightly. Place blueberries in the open center (otherwise fill with plum slices). Pour batter carefully into pan, being careful not to disturb fruit. Bake for 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes before turning out. Serve warm or at room temperature.



Falafel is an Arabic vegetarian dish. It is mainly cuisine along with chutney. The sandwich looks awesome and am surely trying it tonight. I will also call my friends too. Anyways, thanks for sharing this recipe here. Keep posting.
