Flip Over Plum Cake

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is an absolutely fabulous Flip Over Plum Cake.   The thing is, you don't flip the cake over, the batter flips itself over!

I have been baking a great deal lately and I thought I'd cleverly make this cake a couple of weeks ahead of time when I had a bunch of plums on hand.  I decided to cut the recipe in half because I didn't have a lot of plums, I'm not crazy about plums, and I have been baking lots and lots of recipes from Dorie's book this month.

You melt butter in a pan, make a really simple batter and pour it over the butter, then drop in plums that have been tossed with sugar.  Couldn't be simpler and what a wonderful result!

This was so delicious that I bought more plums and made the full recipe!  No picture of that, however, because we ate it all up before I remembered to get out my camera!  


  1. I have never cooked with plums--but that has changed! This was delicious. Dorie gets me out of my comfort zone quite often, I'm so glad.
    Have a great day.

  2. I love plums but this was the first time I've used Italian prune plums. Very tasty!

  3. I love the little note in your book, I wish I'd thought to make notes in mine when we started this group. Glad the cake was such a big hit, I enjoyed it too :)

  4. Great idea to make it twice! It is such a great recipe, I know I will make it again! I love how yours turned out!
    Happy Fall baking!
