Plum Cakey Tart

Rating: 4.59 stars
I had some fresh plums that my husband hadn't eaten, and came up with this delicious dessert. EASY and delicious! This can be used with other stone fruit like peaches or nectarines, and I bet it would be good with apples or pears in the fall! Delicious served warm with vanilla ice cream.
