1 1/2 Cup All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground ginger
1/2 Cup butter, cold
1 1/2 Cup brown sugar
Zest from one lemon, chopped
2 large eggs
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
6 large plums, halved and pitted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare an 81/2 spring form pan with baking spray or flour and butter.
In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a pastry blender so it1/2s crumbly. Combine one cup of brown sugar and half of the lemon zest and add to butter mixture. Set aside.
Next, make the topping. Take 2 tablespoons of flour/butter mixture and combine with half cup brown sugar, 1/2 t. cinnamon and the remaining lemon zest. Set aside.
With a hand whip, beat eggs and buttermilk really well until light and frothy. Fold egg mixture into flour mixture until just combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan. Arrange plums, cut side down on top. Sprinkle topping over plums and batter. Bake 55 minutes or until done.
