We picked this big beauty last night for a BLT supper. Home grown tomato, locally cured bacon and farm stand lettuce on beer bread. The ordinary elevated to the extraordinary by choice of ingredients.
The sandwiches were delicious!
Plum Cake......it came from the Food 52 site. Unfortunately the site is not connecting today. Fortunately I printed the recipe. So without further ado.....
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prep nine by two inch round cake pan. Butter pan, cut parchment paper to fit bottom of pan and butter. Dust with flour.
Measure and sift together in small bowl:
1&1/2 Cup flour
1 Tsp. baking powder
1/4 Tsp. baking soda
Beat together until light and fluffy:
1/2 Cup soft butter
2/3 Cup granulated sugar
Beat in one at a time:
2 Large eggs
3/4 Cup sour cream (I used whole milk Greek yogurt)
1/2 Tsp. Finely grated lemon zest
Beat in flour mix at low speed (I did this by hand)
12 small plums
2 Tblsp. Brown sugar
Cut plums in half and pit.
Spread half the batter in the pan. Sprinkle with 1 tblsp. brown sugar. Place 12 halves, cut side down on batter. Dollop and spread remaining batter. Arrange remaining plum halve cut side up. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. (Depending on size and variety of plums you may need fewer than 12. I used eight. The recipe originally called for prune plums, but any variety will work.)
Bake 50 - 55 minutes, turning pan halfway through baking time. Inserted toothpick should be clean.
Let cool 20 minutes. Invert onto plate, then invert again onto serving plate.
Serve with sweetened whipped cream, vanilla ice cream or plain.
This recipe can be found on Food 52-Your Best Plum Recipes.
(As I mentioned before the link is not working, but this is a site worth visiting.)
Later edit: The link is working. There's a nice how-to pictorial there Plum Cake.
And finally.....KikiLaSois looking disgusted at Winter's antics.
And more fish, which all the kitties would probably enjoy 'meeting.' Thankfully they are all indoor cats!
Enjoy what looks to be a beautiful day.
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
