Hi, welcome to FoodLovers!

Well they did tell us that summer could be a little unusual with the weather patterns and it certainly is that.  My plums are half heartedly ripening although nowhere near as flavoursome as last year.  Thankfully I have a few good recipes such as this fabulous Plum Cake that seems to taste great regardless of the plums.

Happy Cooking!
