“This cake is beyond simple, yet festive and impressive―great for a large get-together. We simply toss fresh plum slices in a small amount of sugar and lemon juice, fan them around the bottom of a skillet, and pour a vanilla-buttermilk cake batter over them before baking,” Ted says. The brothers also recommend using a well-seasoned cast iron skillet to bake the upside down cake, because the ample batter might overflow in a standard cake pan.
