Serious Eats: Sweets
Emily Luchetti's Plum-Cornmeal Cake with Plum Sorbet
For pastry chefs, ripe, juicy plums are just about the best summer fruits to work with; their color adds so much vibrancy to desserts. Adding sugar balances out their tartness and brings out their complex flavors. This cake is good enough to eat by itself (especially with coffee for breakfast!), but the plum sorbet gives it added plum punch. Serve with whipped cream if you like.
