  • Heat 60g butter and 100g brown sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Fill the bottom of the greased pan with the sauce, filling in the gaps between the plums. Leave to cool.
  • After this, Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Use an electric mixer to make the cake.
  • Add the vanilla essence, eggs, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the butter mixture. Mix until everything is well combined. Spread the mixture onto the apple.
