End of Summer Plum Cake

This cake is my final celebration of summer fruit before embracing apples and warm baking spices. It’s the perfect recipe to bake before resolving to fetch the blankets out from storage for the cool mornings and evenings and transitioning back to coffee served hot. A simple acknowledgment of the transitive, summer-into-fall season. This plum cake

Cherries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, plums, all should be unapologetically brandished in tarts, pies, galettes, or even simply macerated and adorned with a dollop of whipped cream.
