Plum Torte for One

I love plums. I’ll eat them just about any way, but I find that this quick little treat is one of the best.

¼ cup plus ½ TBLSP granulated sugar, divided
2 TBLSP vegan butter
¼ cup all-purpose flour
Pinch baking powder
Sprinkle of ground ginger
1 TBLSP non-dairy plain or vanilla yogurt (I use soy, but use whatever you like)
1-2 small plums, quartered and pitted
½ teaspoon lemon juice
Sprinkle of ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 4- or 5-inch cake pan.
  1. In a small bowl, cream the sugar and butter until they’re fluffy.
  2. Add the flour baking powder, and ginger, and incorporate them well.
  3. Add the yogurt and mix it all together.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, smoothing the top. Arrange the plums pleasantly on the top, skin side up.
  5. Sprinkle lemon juice on the plums, just enough to get their surfaces shiny and wet, and then sprinkle the cinnamon and the ½ TBLSP of sugar onto it.
  6. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Cool on a rack.
