My mom was gifted with a couple of bags of fresh plums this week, which she in turn shared with me! I used some of mine to make Smitten Kitchen's Dimply Plum Cake.
1 - I didn't have a fresh orange on hand to zest, so I used 1/2 tsp. of Boyajian orange oil; and
2 - I topped the cake with some fresh toasted hazelnuts
(Random - did you know Oregon is the second largest producer of hazelnuts in the world, behind Turkey? At least that's what we were told on our epicurean walking tour last month.)
This cake was easy and tasty, which was perfect. We enjoyed it as a sweet treat after dinner, but it would be equally good at breakfast or tea-time. I could even see making it with chopped apple or pear.
