Italian Plum Cake

This simple but elegant cake filled with plums doused with Grand Marnier is a great way to end nearly any meal. The plums need not be perfectly ripe for this cake; if they are very firm, however, put them in a paper bag with an apple for a few days and they will ripen nicely.

Great Light and Refreshing

I've looking at this recipe for a while and finally made it yestarday for a party. The cake was great, everyone really enjoyed it. It was light, not too sweet (the plums provided a nice tartness) and the Grand Marnier was barely noticeable. I will definately make it again. I've modified the recipe to use cocunut oil instead of butter, used gluten free all purpose flour, and used tapioca as starch due to allergies and it worked great. I used the breville countertop oven and the cake was ready in 40 minutes, not 50 as suggested in the recipe, so check often. The only snag is that it was time consuming. Definitely not a one pot wonder but the result was worth the effort.
Pros: Adaptable, Will Make Again
Cons: Lengthy
