Plum Upside Down Cake


By Alison Barnett,

Do you know someone with a sweet tooth?  Look no further!  This dense and moist cake plays balances so perfectly with the tart plums.  Make it your own by replacing the plums with any fruit you would like.  I want to try cherry next!


4 ounces Earth Balance
10 ounces cake flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 ounces sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest
4 fluid ounces egg whites
10 fluid ounces Almond Milk
Light brown sugar, for dusting
5 Plums, sliced in half, pit removed and sliced thinly


Preheat oven to 375.  Spray a springform pan and cut out a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of the pan.

Mix the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl.  Using an electric mixer, beat the sugar and butter together until light.  Beat in lemon zest.

In another bowl, whisk egg whites and milk.  Beat in the flour mixture and milk- egg white mixture, alternating, ending with flour mixture.  Beat till smooth and scrape down bowl after each addition.

Cool, release the spring form pan and serve bottoms up.
