I am totally indebted to Darina for this recipe. I sometimes make this with peaches or nectarines too. It is such a great pudding for a dinner party of any sort and if there is any left over, it will keep for days, great with a cup of coffee.
Preheat the oven to 170’c.
Put the sugar and water into the pan.
Stir over a medium heat until the sugar dissolves, then cook without stirring until the sugar caramelises to a golden brown.
Meanwhile half and stone the plums, carefully arrange cut side down in a single layer over the caramel (this will be the top of the cake when it is cooked).
Put the butter, sugar and flour into the bowl of an electric food processor, whiz for a couple of seconds, then add the eggs and stop as soon as the mixture comes together. ( if you don’t have a food processor, just cream the butter and sugar, add the eggs one by one, then mix in the flour).
Spread the mixture in an even layer over the plums in the pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for about one hour.
The centre should be firm to the touch and the edges slightly shrunk from the sides of the pan.
Run a knife around the edges to make sure it has not stuck anywhere.
Do leave it to sit for 3 or 4 minutes before turning out.
Serve with whipped cream or crème fraiche.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery. If you have come to Darwin city, you will understand the local culture and history of Darwin, taste some delicious food and enjoy the amazing scenery here ,also take some photo is a pretty good experience . do you think so.
