DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Butter or coat with cooking spray a 13x9 inch baking dish.
  • For the crust: In a food processor, add all the ingredients and pulse a few times. Pat the crust into the bottom of the prepared dish. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool.
  • Cut the plums in half and remove the pit, cut the bananas in small slices, sprinkle with a Tb of sugar, set aside.
  • For the Cake: Mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt together and set aside.
  • In the bowl of stand mixer (or hand held mixer), cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time and beating well, scraping the bowl if necessary, after each addition.
  • Add the flour mixture, alternating with the buttermilk. Spread the batter over the shortbread base. Place the plums and bananas (if using) on top of the cake in rows of 4 or so, depending on their size. Do not worry if they seem to stick out, the batter rises around them. Bake for 50-55 minutes. Ready!
