  • 175g Stork spread, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 175g Billingtons Golden Caster sugar
  • 175g ground almonds
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 4 large Eggs
  • 4 plums, halved and stoned
  • Icing sugar for dusting


      1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas mark 6. Using a food mixer or electric hand whisk, cream the Stork and sugar together until pale. Add the ground almonds and almond extract then beat in the eggs one at a time.
      2. Grease a 2 litre square Pyrex dish with Stork then pour in the cake mixture.
      3. Press the plums, cut side up, into the mixture then bake for 25-30 minutes until risen and golden. To check that the cake is cooked, insert a cocktail stick or skewer into the centre; if it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.
      4. Leave to cool slightly then dust with icing sugar before serving.
