One of my favorite websites for finding recipes is Epicurious. Type an ingredient or the name of a dessert or entree into the search box, and you get many recipes to choose from. Reviews of the recipes are helpful too. I wanted to make this cake because of another blog I had read that featured plum kuchen. Plums are in season here, and these beauties came from the local gardener’s market.
The taste is rustic and sweet, but not in an overpowering way. The mint, though intended as garnish, makes for a tasty bite when forked up along with the cake.
