Happy valentines days....this is a small gift to my husband.He loves my homemade vanilla cake.I thought i would make it special by adding his favorite kissan jam .I have plums at home from many days..I had an idea of making jam or some dessert out of it.Then i remembered pineapple upside down cake..i thought i could do it with plums...and just made this upsidedown plum cake....

1 cup all purpose
2 whole eggs
2 egg white
1 cup sugar
1/2 stick butter(at room temperature)
3 plums sliced or as required
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
non-stick cooking spray

Sift together baking powder and flour .keep it aside.
In a wide bowl put eggs,sugar,,butter and wisk it with a hand wisker or electric hand beater.
add the flour in batches and beat it.the purpose for adding flour in batches is to incorporate air ,so that the cake comes out fluffy.
add essence to the flour.beat well.
spray the non-stick cooking spray to ur cake mould .
place the plum slices on the mould .
pour the cake batter.
pre-heat the oven to 350 D F.
bake for 30 minutes or till an inserted toothpick comesout clean.
