I used a rectangular baking tin measuring 20 by 30 centimetres.
The weight of the plums is given in the ingredients before removing their pits. Before adding the plums to the cake batter, I washed and dried them, cut each one in half and removed the pits. You can use any type of plum to make this cake.
The chocolate can be dissolved in a microwave or over boiling water. For the latter, put the chocolate in a bowl, place the bowl over a pot with boiling water and stir the chocolate until it is liquid.
