Plum Upside-Down Cake

Oh, man, this is good.  Amaretto and gobs of sugar, balanced out by the tartness of fresh plums.  If you don't have amaretto, you could use more almond milk instead, and add a little almond extract.

The ingredients:
4 T margarine
½ c brown sugar
12-16 pitted plums, halved
2 ½ c flour
1 ½ c sugar
¼ c cornstarch
1 ½ t baking powder
1 t baking soda
¾ t salt
1 ½ c almond milk
2/3 c oil
½ c amaretto
1 T vanilla

The Process:
1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. While oven is heating, melt margarine in a 9x13 baking pan.  Sprinkle brown sugar over melted margarine, and arrange plums on top.
3. Whisk together dry ingredients.  In a separate bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.  Add dry to wet, and stir until just combined.
4. Pour batter over plums, and bake about 50 minutes.
5. Let cool about 10 minutes, then invert onto a cookie sheet.

  1. Looks plum delicious! I'm allergic to amaretto but almond milk would do the trick. Perfect for summer.
