Vanilla Damson/Plum Cake

2 eggs
50 g demerara sugar (1/4 cup)
12 tablespoon vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
2 tablespoons oil
150 g prepared vanilla pudding (I used soy vanilla pudding)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
175 g flour
50 g potato starch
2 teaspoons baking powder
500 g damsons (1 lb) or 500 g plums, cleaned and quartered (1 lb)
50 g biscuits, crushed (e.g. tea biscuits, sugar cookies or try amarettini)


Combine eggs, sugars and salt in a big bowl. With your electric mixer cream this for 8 minutes. Do not skip this step, it is important to cream for at least 8 minutes! Stir in oil, pudding and vanilla extract. In a second bowl combine flour, starch and baking powder. Fold into the wet ingredients. Pour dough into a greased 10 inch spring-form pan. This will look a little skimpy, but the dough will double during baking. Arrange the quartered damsons on top of the dough in concentric circles. Sprinkle with the crushed cookies. Bake in the pre-heated oven at 160C/320F on the second lowest rack for 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean. Serve with whipped cream or ice-cream. :).
