Plum Dandy

We love it when synchronicity happens. We feel all one with the universe and whatnot. Case in point:

Yesterday, Deb at Smitten Kitchen posted about Dorie Greenspan’s recipe for Dimply Plum Cake, a perhaps unfortunately-named dessert that, nonetheless, is both exceptionally beautiful and perfect for the August/September transitional weather:

And then this morning, we woke up to a note from Cafe Selmarie letting us know that — what? what? — “Plum Season is here! Our wonderful Plum Cake will be available beginning Friday morning. If you’ve never experienced this cake you need to stop in! This delicious buttery cake is overflowing with sweet ripe plums.”

And oh, how it is:

In conclusion, this is a wonderful day and everyone should eat plum cake.
