    Rita~'s Note:

    A sweet warm end to any meal. Be sure to sift the flour before baking. Each cup of sifted flour should weight 4 ounces. If using Italian plums do double or triple the amount. If you don't have buttermilk just add 1 tablespoon to a 1 cup measuring cup then fill with milk, let sit 10 minutes.

      I found it to be excellent. Not dense for me at all! I give samples to people who stop at my Farmers Market, and they usually place an order for it!

      This is indeed a dense cake. I used nowhere near 6-8 plums. Maybe our greek plums are much, much smaller but I used 22 for this cake. Good thing I had that many! Otherwise, delicious.

      A fairly dense cake with a muffin-like texture. The crumb topping completely covers the plums so there's no need to arrange them artfully. The second time I made this cake I simply cut my plums in half and overlapped them closely on the batter. The cake tends to be a bit dry so the more plums, the more moist the cake. I easily used 30 plums. The baking time was right on.
