TWD: Flip-Over Cherry Cake

So my plum cherry cake is in the oven cooking right now. I wasn't going to make this until I saw Andrea's version with Morello cherries and the pictures changed my mind.  I'm kind of scared tho, the Morellos from Trader Joe's are pretty blah... but maybe that's always the case with canned cherries. I honestly don't know what you'd use canned cherries for so its not something I typically buy. But you put enough butter and sugar on anything and its bound to be good right? right! Because I was using the canned cherries I cut out the sugar your supposed to toss the plums in and cut out a bit of the butter because really it seems like a lot even with my Paula Dean standards on butter (I swear I'm keeping Costco in business just from the amount of butter I get from them).

 The verdict...

Well it sure isn't photogenic but its mighty tasty. Mine turned out sort of like a sticky cakey cobbler and it would be amazing with ice cream or a dollop of fresh whipped cream. 

Considering how easy it is to make, its a perfect good friends over for dinner sort of thing. You know the sort of friends you don't have to impress with a pretty dessert.

You can grab the full recipe from our hostess (mmm... hostess cherry pie...that's what this sorta tasted like) this week, Becky from Project Domestication.

Yes, it is the perfect dessert for good friends! I thought it was amazing. Having never cooked with plums I didn't quite know what to expect. We were happy, very happy. It was excellent with ice cream.
I'm sure cherries would be yummy too.

"Not photogenic" is a very perfect description :o] Cherries are a good substitute-idea!
