Notice anything different about this recipe? No eggs. No oil. This could easily be vegan if you replaced the butter with a vegan substitute. You really don’t miss those ingredients. This is a very unconventional tart. It’s got a cake-like base with plums piled on top. It has a slight bananas flavor but it just adds to the wonderfulness that is this dessert. I love how the sugar caramelizes and mixes with the plums and it just oozes juice into the dough. It’s so wonderful that it only lasts about 24-48 hours in my house.
