Cook's Notes

Let the cake rest no longer than 10 minutes before turning it out or the topping may stick. If it does stick, dip the pan bottom in hot water, then try turning it out again.

    This cake came out yummy and beautiful just like the photo. I used Italian Prune Plums from my CSA box instead of regular plums. I substituted all-purpose flour for the cake flour using the same measurements. I also used Pensey's Baking Spice instead of allspice.
