Super-delicious gluten-free plum cake, a great way of using plums when in-season. Use quality plums that are ripe but not overly soft and juicy yet. You want to use fruits that are more firm than you might select if eating them raw.

Serve with cream or whipped cream or warm with ice cream. This rustic plum cake is a fabulous dessert option.
