How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oven to 350° F. Butter an 8-inch cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.

Step 2

Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the plums and ¼ cup of the sugar and cook, tossing, until the sugar dissolves and the juices from the plums become syrupy, 3 to 4 minutes. Arrange the plums in the cake pan in slightly overlapping concentric circles, starting from the outside. Spoon any pan juices over the top.

Step 3

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 4

With an electric mixer, beat the remaining ½ cup of the butter and ⅔ cup of the sugar until fluffy. Beat in the egg, sour cream, and vanilla. Gradually add the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated.

Step 5

Pour the batter over the plums and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 1 hour. Place a large plate over the cake pan and invert the cake onto the plate.
