RUSTIC PLUM CAKE

2011-12-30



Rustic Plum Cake image

Recipe from Cook's Illustrated. Italian plums work the best. Bought a lot of Italian plums at the farmer's market, so I had to make a few cakes and then freeze most of them. Freezing the cakes didn't seem to hurt the flavor at all. Now all I have to do is pop one out of the freezer when I'm in the mood for a delicious plum cake!

Number Of Ingredients 14

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons red currant jelly or 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  • 3 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 lb Italian plum, halved and pitted (about 10 large or 14 small)
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting pan (3 3/4 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup sugar (5 1/4 ounces)
  • 1/3 cup slivered almonds (1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon table salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 6 pieces, softened but still cool
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 large egg yolk, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional)
  • confectioners' sugar, for serving

Steps:

  • Cook jam and brandy in 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until reduced to thick syrup, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and place plums cut-side down in syrup. Return skillet to medium heat and cook until plums shed their juices and thick syrup is again formed, about 5 minutes, shaking pan to prevent plums from sticking. Cool plums in pan, about 20 minutes.
  • Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 350°F Grease and flour 9-inch springform pan. Process sugar and almonds in food processor until nuts are finely ground, about 1 minute. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; pulse to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse sand, about ten 1-second pulses. Add eggs, vanilla, and almond extract (if using) and process until smooth, about 5 seconds, scraping bowl once if needed (batter will be very thick and heavy).
  • Transfer batter to prepared pan; using spatula, spread batter evenly to pan edges and smooth surface. Stir plums to coat with syrup. Arrange plum halves, skin-side down, evenly over surface of batter. Bake until cake is golden brown and wooden skewer inserted into center comes out with few crumbs attached, 40 to 50 minutes. Run paring knife around sides of cake to loosen. Cool in pan on wire rack until just warm or to room temperature, at least 30 minutes. Remove cake from pan and dust with confectioners' sugar. Cut into wedges and serve.
  • Note:This recipe works best with Italian plums, which are also called prune plums. If substituting regular red or black plums, use an equal weight of plums, cut them into eighths, and stir them a few times while cooking. Arrange slices, slightly overlapped, in two rings over surface of cake. Do not use canned Italian plums. Blanched whole almonds can be used but must be processed 30 seconds longer until finely ground. The brandy can be omitted, but then you will need to melt the jam with 1 tablespoon water before adding the plums. Don't add the leftover plum cooking liquid to the cake before baking; reserve it and serve with the finished cake or over ice cream. The cake can be served with lightly sweetened whipped cream.

This moist, lemony plum cake needs little more than a dusting of confectioners' sugar. If you like, though, a dollop of sour cream is a delicious accompaniment.

Time 1h30m

Number Of Ingredients 12

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for pan
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 3 plums, halved, pitted, and cut into eighths
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter an 8-by-2-inch or a 9-inch cake pan and line bottom with a round of parchment. In a large bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. With mixer on low, beat in eggs, one at a time, until incorporated; beat in vanilla and lemon zest. Beat in half the flour mixture, then sour cream. Add remaining flour mixture; mix just until combined.
  • Spread batter into pan and smooth top with a knife. In a bowl, toss plums with 2 tablespoons flour and sprinkle over batter.
  • Bake until cake is golden, about 30 minutes; loosely tent with foil and bake until cake pulls away from side of pan and a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean, about 35 minutes more. Let cake cool completely in pan. Run knife around cake edge and remove cake from pan. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.
