This is such an easy cake recipe & it was delishious! I don't have a 9" cake pan so I used an 8" cast iron skillet & it worked great. Thanks for posting.
Wow!! What a moist cake. It has great flavors. Very easy to make. I will be making this again. I wanted to mention that I used my iron skillet to make this. I think thats why it turned out so dark. Thank You for posting.
Pretty and quite tasty! My husband even said "better than what I expected" ;) I had rather large plums, so just used 2 and one was really juicy. All my blueberries floated to the top (bottom when turned over). Had to use the cake flour sub (used 2 Tbsp cornstarch and filled in the rest with AP flour) and used lemon extract in place of lemon zest. Oh, and used buttermilk powder/water. With all those subs, it still turned out well.
