“A tasty dessert for the holidays or just anytime. Received recipe from a friend and posting for safe-keeping. Hint: Thoroughly mix just the flour and plums together until well-coated, then add remaining cake ingredients. This will keep the plums from all becoming settled at the bottom of the cake.”
