Gluten Free Italian Plum Cake

Maybe it’s because they both originally hail from Italy- but there is just something magical about the combination of Italian plums and a high-quality olive oil, like California Olive Ranch Reserve Miller’s Blend. This moist, lightly sweetened, delicate cake topped with fresh plums goes so well with a cup of tea or even a scoop of creme fraiche. Even if the ingredients are from your own backyard, this classic Italian cake will have you saying “Ottimo!”.
