As the weather has gotten cooler I have been enjoying some of the late season fruits. I was gifted a box of Italian prune Plums from a local orchard Symms Fruits. The plums were perfectly ripe and ready to be made into this Rustic Italian Plum Cake. The moist cake, juicy fruit, crisp almonds and a dollop of whip cream makes this cake to die for!
