zwetschgenkuchen plum cake


this is a classic german pastry and a delicious way to use all the plums that ripen in late summer. actually a cross between a tart and a cake, the baked red plums give the treat a rosy appearance. not an overly sweet dessert, it should be served with lots of fresh whipped cream.
