Itty-Bitty Dimply Plum Cake
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe, Michelle of Bake-en selected the Dimply Plum Cake (page 41) from Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours. This came together in two parts...
Lots of beautiful plums and a full size 8x8 pan.
Cut fruit, mix and bake.
After 40 minutes, the top was golden and the toothpick came out clean.
But when I cut into the cake, it was crazy raw. Like the raw food movement entered the center of my cake. Except for sashimi, I like my food above 115 degrees.
This time, based on a few factors (including the sad state of plums at the Farmer's Market), I decided to make 1/4 of the recipe in a little 4-inch pan.
Even though it was a 4-inch pan, I baked it for 40-45 minutes (can't remember now...I just keep hitting "snooze" on the kitchen timer). At 30 minutes, I tented the pan with some aluminum foil.
Yippee! I held off the raw food movement (I just don't understand this, by the way - how can you give up hot soup in the winter??!??!) and it was nicely baked!
Whoo Hoo! My cake and Dorie!
