This lemon plum cake is light, fluffy, and loaded with zesty, tangy, and sweet flavors, for a well-balance and delectable dessert!

Cooking: 1 hour
Cool Time: 1 hour
Total: 2 hours 30 minutes

  • ½tspbaking soda
  • ¼tspsalt
  • 1tbspcinnamon
  • ¾cupunsalted butter,softened
  • ½cupbrown sugar,packed
  • ½cupwhite sugar
  • 3eggs
  • 1tbspvanilla extract
  • tsplemon zest,finely grated
  • ½cupplain yogurt
  • 3plums,pitted, cut into eighths
  • 2tbspall purpose flour
  • 1tspconfectioners’ sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch cake pan, and line the bottom with a round piece of parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.

  3. In a separate bowl, beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.

  4. Beat in eggs one at a time, then beat in vanilla extract and lemon zest. Mix the butter mixture into the flour mixture, alternating with yogurt until the mixture forms a smooth, even batter.

  5. Spread the batter into the prepared cake pan. Place the plum slices into a bowl, and toss with 2 tablespoons of flour. Arrange the plum slices onto the cake in a decorative pattern.

  6. Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes until browned. Loosely cover the cake with foil, and bake for 30 to 40 more minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean and the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan.

  7. Let cake cool completely in pan. Run a knife around the edge of the cake to loosen, and remove from pan.

  8. Dust with powdered sugar before slicing. Enjoy!
