mario burros's 1983 plum torte is an 8-ingredient, 4-step cult classic in which a mass of plums are coated with cinnamon sugar and baked into a pancake-like batter, where they melt into pie-like pockets and you definitely don't want to miss it. we make it every summer, usually twice.

made this today...amazing!!! of course we had to eat same day... but there is a half left to become even better ( if that is possible) tomorrow. yes i buttered the bottom of pan...yes i used the whole cup of sugar and it was not too sweet.. and yes i used a tablespoon of cinnamon ... and for me it was perfect because i love cinnamon!! ps did not use italian plums but instead plums from trader joe called apriplums...and they were delish!! - 8 days ago
