1.     Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350 °F (175 °C) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan with butter or line it with parchment paper.

2.     Creaming Butter and Sugar: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until the mixture becomes light and fluffy. Use a hand mixer or stand mixer for best results.

3.     Adding Eggs and Vanilla: Beat in the eggs, one at a time, ensuring each egg is fully incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla extract and continue to mix until the batter is well combined.

4.     Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet mixture, alternating with milk. Begin and end with the dry mixture, mixing until just combined. Avoid over mixing to prevent a dense cake.

5.     Incorporating Plums and Zest: Gently fold in the chopped plums and lemon zest into the batter. The plums add a burst of natural sweetness and a delightful texture to the cake.

6.     Baking: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 45–50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

7.     Cooling and Serving: Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10–15 minutes. Then, carefully transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.

Pro Tips:

·        To prevent the plums from sinking to the bottom of the cake, lightly coat them in a tablespoon of flour before folding them into the batter.

·        For an extra touch of flavour, you can sprinkle a little 4cinnamon on top of the cake batter before baking.
