Upside Down Plum Cake

In the summer we have lots of plum tree's. Different varieties & sizes but all sweet. I tend to make lots of jam with the smaller variety both red & white but also preserve them for the winter.
I have used some of my preserved plums & homemade jam for this recipe but you can use the larger variety plum & either plum or mixed fruit jam.

 For the base
30g Butter softened
30g Demerara sugar
2 tbsp Plum jam
Plums halved & stones removed
For the cake
100g Butter softened
100g Caster sugar
3 Eggs
100g SR Flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
2 tbsp Milk
Preheat oven 180c or 160c fan
Sauce..... Beat butter, sugar & jam together & spread over the bottom of a cake tin. Add the plums.
Beat together butter & sugar then add one egg at a time with a little flour & beat well.
Sift remaining flour, baking powder & cinnamon & fold in well. Spoon mixture over the plums.
Bake for 45 - 50 mins untill well risen
Serve hot with Mascarpone cheese, cream or custard
