So what does one do with an abundance of plums? First, give them away, you will have more and chances are your neighbors will give you delicious things in return like zucchini and avocados. Second, eat straight from the tree; wipe those babies off and eat 'em quick before your clothes are covered in pink plum juice. Lastly, bake many cakes.
So far I've made delicious plum cobbler with a peach cobbler recipe and just sliced plums as a substitution. A little more tart like a tart cherry pie but so incredibly delicious, especially with ice cream.
I also made the New York Times Plum Torte. Another simple but beautiful dessert. And it's not super sweet so could be great as a coffee or snack cake. But I'm prego so everything is better with ice cream!
I'm having some issues linking recipes so here ya go:
