Italian Prune Plum Cake

We have a tree out behind our place that is heavy with ripe and perfect fruit right now. Darian and I went out this morning to pick a few pounds of plums and we made cake!

It was so delicious served with ice cream! It has just the right mix of sweet and sour and it has a great rustic look to it. The crust is so thick and has a scone-like quality.
I bet it would be awesome drizzled with heavy cream instead of ice cream.

The recipe is great because it is super easy and fun to make. We served it right out of the oven!

Here is the recipe:
3 1/2 c. flour
3/4 c. sugar
2 sticks butter
3 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/2 c. milk
Blend like pie mix, then roll out on a greased cookie sheet or into a large cake pan, then spread plums on top. ABOUT (3 pounds plums), halved and quartered.
Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes.
Before eating sprinkle with sugar.
