Using a wooden spoon or hand beater, beat butter, sugar, grated lemon or orange peel, eggs, flour, cornflour and baking powder for about 1 minute, or until smooth. Spread into a buttered, floured 30 x 20 cm ovenproof dish and arrange plum halves, cut side up, on top (they will sink as cake cooks and end up underneath). Bake at 180 ºC, for 1 hour, or until golden and springy to the touch and a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Sprinkle with castor sugar and serve warm with lots of thick cream or fromage frais. TOTAL KILOJOULE COUNT: 19 534 kJ (4 670 Cal). A portion: 2 790 kJ (665 Cal).
