This cake is incredibly easy to make, tasty, and looks really beautiful (and impressive, if that’s what you’re going for) when cooked. The plums soften & bleed into the batter as they cook and their tart flavor is a great contrast to the sweet buttery cake. You can also experiment with other fruits (nectarines, peaches, persimmons, maybe figs).
