    HeatherFeather's Note:

    Adapted from "Backen Spezial" magazine, which I translated from the German. This version is unusual in that it calls for sweet red plums, rather than the more typical prune plums. You may also use sweet purple plums, but make sure they are sweet ones, not the oval prune plums.

      Delicious. Cake had a lovely texture and had just the right sweetness to go along with the red plums. I did substitute a bit of vanilla for the cinnamon. I will definitely make this recipe again.

      This was a very simple recipe to follow with great results.I must admit that I didn't use the almonds on top and I left out the cinnamom, it was still great. The bottom layer is very light and the lemon juice really makes the whole thing come together. I will definitely use this recipe again.
