We have a plum tree in our backyard. I am not sure just what kind of plums they are, as they were planted by the previous owner of our home. What I can tell you is that this plum tree is REALLY happy in our backyard, and for some reason, this year the birds didn't get to the crop before I did. My husband and I were planning a visit up to see my sister and her husband in Granite Bay over the 4th of July holiday, and I thought it might be a good opportunity to try a recipe for Plum Upside Down Cake I found in the June issue of Country Home magazine. The recipe was easy, used a couple pounds of the three tons of plums I have, and looked and tasted fantastic. You can see for yourself how pretty it looked on Andrea's 4th of July table:
Don't you just want to take your finger and swipe up that little bit of dribbling plum juice? Anyway, here is the recipe, and I do hope you will try it!
