Italian Plum Torte

Strawberries, blueberries, and peaches are typically the fruits of the summer – however, let us not forget the humble Italian plum. They’re wonderful when baked, this is the delicious torte that The Boy and I made this week. It was so good, that we’re making it again today!

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • large pinch of salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 small Italian purple plums, halved and pitted
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon + 2 tablespoons granulated sugar, mixed
  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Lightly grease a 9″ springform pan, set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk, flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  3. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down the bowl – then add flour mixture, mix until just combined.
  4. Pour batter into prepared pan, and smooth the top with a spatula. Arrange the plums, skin side up on top of the batter. Sprinkle the top with the cinnamon sugar. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the cake area comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
