Plum Cakey Tart

Rated as 4.55 out of 5 Stars

"I had some fresh plums that my husband hadn't eaten, and came up with this delicious dessert. EASY and delicious! This can be used with other stone fruit like peaches or nectarines, and I bet it would be good with apples or pears in the fall! Delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray an 7x11-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, white flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Cream together the butter and 3/4 cup of sugar in a large bowl; mix in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients in two additions, mixing gently between each addition until the batter is just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish, and arrange the sliced plums over the batter. Sprinkle the fruit with 1 tablespoon sugar, and dust with cinnamon.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 50 to 55 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I MAKE THIS WAY TOO OFTEN. It's SO good that it's almost addicting! A great way to use leftover plums. 1 cup of all-purpose flour is fine if you don't have whole wheat - it worked for me! I tri...

Was very simple to make. Only change I made was using 1 cup all-purpose flour since I don't have whole wheat flour on hand. The only negative was that the flavor wasn't as sweet as I was hoping....

I used more plums than called for and will use even more for my next bake - probably 5 or 6 med. I added a tsp or so of vanilla for some added flavour. I will make again with more vanilla and m...

Dad loved this, he is the plum guy in the family. But the last plums we bought were not as sweet as he liked so I tried this recipe. Very easy recipe, things you would already have in your pantr...

Fantasic. I used about 2x the plums, cut into cubes, and pressed all the way down into the batter. Rave reviews and so easy.

The only thing I changed was to substitute coconut oil for the butter. My son has a dairy allergy, and butter substitutes don't always bake well. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. It ...

Made it twice, once as directed. Second with more plums, quartered and a scant 1/3-1/2 c. of a crumble crust since we like more plums. Pan size is important. Delicious! Nicely sized for ...
