How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350. Butter a 9" springform cake pan and lightly dust with flour .
- In small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
- In large bowl, with a spatula, cream together the butter and all but 2 tblsp of the sugar. Add the egg, milk, lemon zest and vanilla.
- Stir in the flour mixture and mix with a spatula until smooth. Transfer batter to the pan. Cover the surface of the batter with the fruit, pressing the fruit slightly into the batter. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.
- (If using plums, mix the extra sugar with about 1/2 tsp cinnamon and toss the plums in the mixture, reserving a little to sprinkle on top. Also, a bit of lemon zest tossed with the plums gives the cake a nice zesty flavor.)
- Bake for 10 minutes at 350, then reduce to 325 and bake for another 50-60 minutes, until golden brown and firm to the touch.
- Cool in the pan for 15 min., then unmold and cool completely on a rack.
