This rustic cake is a delicious way to celebrate the best of the plum season.


  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 6 slices French bread, 1-inch thick
  • 2 cups chopped ripe fresh plums
  • 2 Tbs water
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated lemon peel


  • Heat oven to 375°F. Beat eggs, milk, almond extract, and vanilla in medium bowl until blended. Pour 1/2 of the egg mixture into 9-inch square baking dish. Place bread slices in mixture; pour remaining egg mixture over bread. Let stand, turning occasionally, until liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile combine plums and water in medium saucepan; cook, covered, over medium heat until tender. Add sugar and lemon peel; mix. Spread in 8-inch square baking dish.
  • Place soaked bread on top of plums. Bake in 375°F oven until lightly browned and no visible liquid egg remains, 20–30 minutes.
