This is a nice easy cake. Perfect for a last minute comfort. I made half the portion in an 8" cake pan and it came out lovely. You can read my review and look at a photo of the cake on my blog: https://bulachki.com/sugarplum-cake/

This cake is easy, moist, and cinnamon-y delicious! A 6oz jar of plums with apples baby food is not to be found anywhere anymore, so I used a two pack of prunes with apples. Each tub is 4oz. and I used both. I made it for our smaller Christmas Eve gathering when the fancier desserts were needed for our larger Christmas Day dinner. Everyone loved it. Excellent the next day with coffee too!
