Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 6-8 small plums
  • powdered sugar

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Butter a 9-inch round springform pan and set aside. If you don't have a springform pan, you can use a regular round cake pan, but be sure to butter it and line it with parchment paper.
  • In a medium-sized bowl combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs, one by one, and continue to mix.
  • Beat in the vanilla and lemon zest, followed by half of the flour mixture. Mix until blended.
  • Pour in the yogurt and the rest of the flour mixture. Beat until combined.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan and smooth the top with either a cake spatula or a knife.
  • Toss the halved plums in 2 tablespoons of flour until well coated, then place them on top of the cake batter.
  • Bake the cake for 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven, tent a piece of foil and loosely place on top of the cake. Return it to the oven for another 20 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Allow it to cool completely before removing it from the pan.
  • Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
