Recipe Ingredients for Dimpled Plum Cake

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup (packed) light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1/3 cup applesauce
1 tsp orange zest
1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup plums

Recipe Directions for Dimpled Plum Cake

  1. Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 350F. Butter an 8-inch square baking pan, dust the inside with flour, tap out the excess and put the pan on a baking sheet.

  2. Whisk the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon together.

  3. Working with a mixer, beat the butter at medium speed until it?s soft and creamy, about 3 minutes. Add the sugar and beat for another 3 minutes, then add the eggs, one at a time, and beat for a minute after each egg goes in.

  4. Still working on medium speed, beat in the applesauce, zest and vanilla; reduce the mixer speed to low and add the dry ingredients, mixing only until they are incorporated.

  5. Run a spatula around the bowl and under the batter, just to make sure there are no dry spots, then scrape the batter into the pan and smooth the top. Arrange the plums cut side up in the batter?Dorie says she usually makes four rows of four plum halves each?jiggling the plums a tad just so they settle comfortably into the batter.

  6. Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes (Dorie says 40, mine was done in 30 so check early and often), or until the top is honey brown and puffed around the plums and a thin knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

  7. Transfer the cake to a rack and cool for 15 minutes during which time the plums juices will seep back into the cake then run a knife around the sides of the pan and unmold the cake. Invert and cool right side up.
