Wash, pit and quarter the plums. Cream the softened butter with the sugar, vanilla sugar and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl for at least 5 minutes until creamy white and fluffy.
SIFT the flour together with the baking powder, cinnamon (optional) and cornstarch and sift into a bowl. Then stir into the egg mix alternating with the cream.
Now pour the batter in a prepared lined springform pan and smooth everything out. Arrange the fruits in a circle on top of the batter.
Bake in the preheated oven ( place in the middle) for approx. 50 - 55 minutes. Check for doneness with a toothpick.
When the baking time is over, take the cake out of the oven, let it cool down in the pan for 10-15 minutes, then remove the springform pan, place the cake on a wire rack and let it cool down. Serve dusted with icing sugar and whipped cream on the side.
