I have a confession to make. If you know me well, it may be a shocker.
… I’m finally tired of plums.
Normally, I’m a plum fiend. I feel like this year has been super abundant on the plum front, though, and I’m really just done when it comes to eating them straight. So, I searched for other things to do with this beautiful bowl of fruit I had…
And I found this legendary recipe from the New York Times for Plum Torte. People are crazy enough about this darn recipe that I figured it had to be worth my time. Little Chef helped me out. We ended up having (and needing) fewer plums than the recipe suggests – it really depends on the size of your pan and the size of your plums. I somehow also still don’t have a springform pan (Dear Santa, if you’re listening…), so I lined a cake pan with parchment paper. It turned out just fine.
This was ridiculously easy to make, and when it comes to taste, I think this last picture speaks for itself. A piece disappeared before I could even get a picture! I’ll definitely be making this again. Apparently, it freezes well, so if I get plums again this week, I’ll make a second torte and stick it in the freezer.
