Nutrition information

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Buttery Sweet Dough Flavor or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Fiori di Sicilia, optional
  • 1 cup King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups berries or 12 Italian prune plums, halved
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top

  • 4 ounces butter
  • 5 1/4 ounces granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Buttery Sweet Dough Flavor or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Fiori di Sicilia, optional
  • 4 1/4 ounces King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups berries or 12 Italian prune plums, halved
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top

  • 113g butter
  • 149g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Buttery Sweet Dough Flavor or 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Fiori di Sicilia, optional
  • 120g King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 cups berries or 12 Italian prune plums, halved
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon, to sprinkle on top

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8″ or 9″ square pan, or 9″ or 10″ round pan.
  2. Beat together the butter, sugar, baking powder, and salt until smooth.
  3. Add the eggs, beating until thoroughly combined. The mixture may look somewhat coagulated; that’s OK. Stir in the vanilla and optional flavor.
  4. Add the flour, mixing to make a smooth, stiff batter.
  5. Spread the batter in the pan. In the larger-sized pans, the batter will be spread fairly thin; that’s OK.
  6. Spread the berries or plums on top. If you use plums, place them with their skins up. Sprinkle with the cinnamon-sugar.
  7. Bake the cake for about 35 to 40 minutes, until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean, and the cake showing around the berries is a light golden brown. Remove it from the oven, and serve warm, or at room temperature.
