If you like a dessert that is not too sweet then this is the cake for you. I made it for the first time on Tuesday and it will be made again and again. I can envision using other fruits apart from plums.

Plum and Almond Cake

5 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
2/3 cup almond flour (finely ground almonds)
1/2 cup flour
13 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
6 Plums, halved and pits removed
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter and flour your tart or cake pan. (A square pan works well.) In a large bowl, mix the egg whites and sugar vigorously for a couple of minutes. Add the flours and whisk and then add the cooled butter and whisk until smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan. Place plum halves on top of batter.

Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes until golden brown.
