Prune Plum Torte
Recipe from a friend

1 Cup All purpose flour, sifted
1 Teaspoon baking powder
3/4 to 1 Cup granulated sugar plus 1 to 2 tablespoons
1/2 Cups unsalted butter, softened
2 large eggs
12 purple prune plums, halved and pitted
2 Teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 Teaspoons ground cinnamon or more, to taste
1 Pinch salt

1. Arrange a rack in the lower third of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream the butter and 3/4 to 1 cup of sugar. Add the flour, baking powder, eggs, and salt and beat to mix well. Spoon the batter into an ungreased 9- or 10-inch springform pan. Cover the top with the plums, skin sides up. Mix the cinnamon with the remaining 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar and sprinkle over the top. sprinkle lemon juice over the top.
3. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool; refrigerate or freeze if desired.
4. To serve, let the torte return to room temperature and reheat at 300 degrees until warm, if desired. Serve plain or with vanilla ice cream.

I find it tastes best the next day after all the plum juice settle into the cake ☺
let me know how it turns out if you guys make it~

I cut down the sugar to 0.6 cup and added a tbs of milk. Baked for 4mins.
