The rest of Harry’s Christmas presents were far more satisfactory. Hagrid had sent him a large tin of treacle fudge which harry decided to soften by the fire before eating; Ron had given him a book called Flying with the cannons, a book of interesting facts about his favorite quidditch team, and Hermione had bought him a luxury eagle-feather quill. Harry opened the last present to find a new, hand-knit sweater from Mrs. Weasley and a large plum cake.-Harry potter and the chamber of secrets chapter 12 pg 212 hardcover.
This doesn’t make a large cake but it does make a mighty tasty one. Make sure to let cool completely before tucking in. I cut a slice to bring to my dad while it was still warm and I sampled a bite, it was just okay however when we had some after dinner and it was room temperature it was really lovely.
1.5c. all-purpose flour
1c. sugar, plus a bit for sprinkling
½tsp. baking soda
1tsp. baking powder
2Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
4 plums I used 2 "black" and 2 yellow sliced into crescents
Cinnamon for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 375F lightly grease In large bowl mix the dry ingredients, add in the wet and mix till lumps are gone. pour into prepared 9in round cake pan, arrange plum slices over the top and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
|Cinnamon sprinkle not shown that was a afterthought I didn't get a picture of.|
