Does anyone have this please?There was a recipe in the Womans Day a few months ago it was called Jax's Plum Cake and it was a recipe by Jax from Masterchef NZ and used black doris plums.If anyone has this or a cake recipe using the plums I would be very grateful, thanks.

Thanks, saved. Quite different recipes. Will try Jax's.

Gosh they are quite different - thanks for the Jax one - will make that too. I can recommend the one I posted, it's easy and delish.

I made the Jax version last night and while it was delicious the timing was waaaaayyyy out. It was in the oven for an hour and a half at 160, then I gave in and roared the oven up to 180 on fan bake to get it finished off. So, fantastic cake, but watch the timing :)
