Sesame ginger plum cake

An easy cake that celebrates plums at their best. This version has some inspiration from Japan, matching plums with ginger and sesame.

125g unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
6 plums, quartered
2 tablespoons caster sugar, extra

Preheat oven to 180C. Place the butter, sugar and ginger in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 6-8 minutes, or until light and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour, sesame seeds, sour cream and milk and mix to combine. Spoon into a 20 x 30 slice tin lined with non stick baking paper. Spoon the mixture into the tin. Toss the plums in the sugar and place on top of the cake. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through, when tested with a skewer.

Serves 6-8.
