Easy plum cake

Delicious sponge cake with plums and cinnamon

Fruit cakes are the best. They can make a great dessert or an amazing start to a day if served as a breakfast with some tea or coffee. Plums, however, get this really special taste after baking and it goes so well with cinnamon. This is an easy and quick cake you can make even if you have some uninvited guests coming over.
