3 small plums, thinly slice
11 tablespoons softened butter
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon table salt
Baking spray with flour
8" or 9" round cake pan
Trace the outline of your cake pan on the parchment, and cut a circle just inside the line you've drawn. Line the pan and spray the whole thing with baking spray.
In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar for two minutes. Beat in the flour and salt, before adding the vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Spoon the thick batter over your plums, spreading it gently with a small spatula so you don't move the fruit.
Bake at 350 (325 convection) for about an hour and five minutes. I prefer mine very crusty, so I left it in for ten minutes longer. Rest the cake on the counter for five minutes, before inverting it and peeling off the parchment. You'll want to do this very carefully, and with a small knife in hand to ease off any slices of plum that stick to the paper.
