Eve's Pudding (but with plums...)

I got home from school, and felt like baking with my sister, so because neither of us had any homework, we baked an Eve's Pudding. Slight problem though - we didn't have any apples, but we adapted and used plums instead! I think it tastes just as good, because the tartiness of the plums was really nice with the sponge.

4 regular plums
2 tbsp caster sugar

75g butter, softened
100g caster sugar
100g self-raising flour
2 eggs, beaten
1 tbsp boiling water
1/4 tsp baking powder

  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees C
  2. Chop the plums into rough quarters, and place in a saucepan. Cook on a low heat until soft. Add the caster sugar.
  3. Place the plums in a 2 inch depth gratin dish. Leave to cool.
  4. (For the sponge) Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy.
  5. Fold the flour and eggs in in alternate spoonfuls into the sugar mixture until blended, being careful to keep folding rather than stirring energetically - this will keep air in the mixture and fold in.
  6. Add a spoonful of boiling water to the mix.
  7. Spoon the mixture over the plums. Cook in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the topping is puffy and golden. Serve with cream or custard.
