We bought lots, lots of yummy plums at Marché Jean-Talon a few days ago, as well as a dried lavender bouquet whose colour matches so well with these fruits. They’re fresh, juicy, ripe and sweet. So we decided to bake a Ukrainian cake from this very gorgeous cookbook for the occasion. And because it is just another excuse to celebrate summer one last time before autumn is in full swing. For this recipe, we used two varieties: Ontario blue plums and Montréal’s Mont-Royal plums. Local food is always best.
