    A delicious substitution for the plums would be apricots. From the Pennsylvania Dutch chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947

      This was delicious! The bottom crust is like a shortbread and the plums on top are sweet and creamy. This is a very nice summer dessert. I added about half the sugar called for at the end because the plums were already very sweet.

      Very good! I added some cinnamon (because we in Croatia always put cinnamon with plums, apples and poppy seeds). I had some surplus of dough so I grated it over the top. Really very good, it will become my usual season cake. Thanks!
