We’re talking plums today. I think that plums don’t quite get the attention they should receive. Somehow cherries, peaches, and strawberries steal the show during the summer months, right?  It’s a shame since plums work so well when baked into cobblers, galettes, financiers, cakes, crisps and crumbles. In my area, plum season is usually from May – October and I’m always game to get into a stone fruit baking frenzy over the summer and early fall. The plum juice always reduces into a delicious sweet wine syrup. We’ve picked our favorite ooze-worthy plum desserts for you to try this summer. With all the options above and below, what are you all waiting for? Scroll down for the links to recipes.

Fun Fact: Did you know that plums come in 2,000 different varieties?

  2. So funny, I just made the Ina Garten Plum Tart last week end and it was a huge success. Totally delicious! Even made the Vanilla Armagnac ice-cream she recommends serving with it. To die for! Perfect grown-up summer dessert. Posted it on my blog a few days ago. Great minds think alike!!
