My friend gave me boxed of Japanese plums from her plum tree and I've been finding ways to enjoy them. This torte can be served for breakfast or dessert topped with a bit of ice-cream. The plums keep it from becoming too sweet. What I especially enjoy about this cake is that it is a perfect cake to freeze and bring out at a later date when you will appreciate a taste of summer. I haven given this cake to neighbors, friends, and family members and everyone loves it. You can also use other stone fruits if you would like. If you do not have a spring form pan, you can line a 9 inch cake pan with foil leaving an overhang over the edges of the pan. Oil the foil generously. Use the foil to "pull" the cake out of the pan when ready. From Cooking for Comfort.
