Plum Cake

New City has a farmer's market! I can hardly believe it. New City, the town that inspired Gertrude Stein's famous comment, "There is no there there." has a small farmer's market every Sunday through November.

Today I bought plums to make this intriguing whole wheat plum cake.
It's simple. Wash, seed & slice the plums,make a quick batter of butter, sugar, whole wheat flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla & a little brandy too make sure the whole wheat doesn't make the cake too healthy,
top with the plums & a couple of tablespoons of demarara sugar (or brown sugar) and there you have it.
I think I'll be having cake for breakfast tomorrow. Thanks, New City Farmer's Market.

Oh & I also got a bottle of local wine from this place.
I'll be trying that tonight. I think a little Cabernet Franc will probably go well with plum cake.
