I have been baking a great deal lately and I thought I'd cleverly make this cake a couple of weeks ahead of time when I had a bunch of plums on hand. I decided to cut the recipe in half because I didn't have a lot of plums, I'm not crazy about plums, and I have been baking lots and lots of recipes from Dorie's book this month.
You melt butter in a pan, make a really simple batter and pour it over the butter, then drop in plums that have been tossed with sugar. Couldn't be simpler and what a wonderful result!
This was so delicious that I bought more plums and made the full recipe! No picture of that, however, because we ate it all up before I remembered to get out my camera!
