Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    I needed a plum to make duck burgers (Nigel Slater), but as they are not in season I resorted to using tinned. So, what do you do with the leftover plums? Make this cake, of course! It is a lovely, homely kind of cake. I only used 1/2 tsp of almond essence and that was plenty. I imagine using the stipulated 1 tsp would have been quite overpowering. This cake would work well with any other tinned fruit that may be lying around forgotten in the back of the pantry.
