Tips & Tricks
Plums can be substitute with apricots, Rabab, apples or pears depending on
the season. If you use a lot of juicy and sour fruits like Rabab, add a
little more almond flour and stir fruits in flour, so will not fall all
the way to the bottom during baking.
Serve chilled with creme fraiche, or vanilla ice cream.
