Plum Upside Down Pudding/Cake 2

If there is one pudding I love its an upside down cake/pudding. It ticks all the boxes as far as I am concerned & you will probably find a few on this blog, as time goes by ;-)
A lovely pudding served warm or cold with cream or custard. Great for entertaining, family meal or just you. Its easy to prepare & make, tastes great & if you leave some for the next day makes a lovely cake to eat alone or with cream. Mmmmmmmm
This really is the queen of all puddings, & with winter coming perfect comfort food
Plums cut in half & stones removed
2oz butter or margarine
4 oz sugar
1tsp Ginger optional
175gr Sugar
175gr Margarine
175gr  SR Flour
3 Eggs
1 tsp Cinnamon
3 tbsp Milk
Topping....Beat the sugar & margarine together & spread over the bottom of a 8" sponge tin. If you are using the ginger sprinkle this over the top, evenly. Place the plums cut side down then put aside.
Heat the oven 160c (fan) or 180c.
Cake....Beat the sugar & margarine together till fluffy. Add eggs one at a time beating in gently. Add flour & cinnamon & fold in. Add milk & mix well. Pour mix over the plums & bake in the center of the oven for 45 mins, till firm to the touch & starting to come away from the side.
Run a knife round the edge of pan & turn out onto a plate.
Serve warm with cream, ice cream or Custard. Can be eaten cold as a cake but this would be best the following day when the flavour has developed & cake will be moist but not wet.
