Among the peach tarts and berry buckles, plums fall to the wayside. Maybe you've reached for a plum as a midday snack, but discovered it was more mealy and plain than "so sweet and so cold." But a splash of acidity or a stint in the oven can do wonders for these stone fruits, bringing out their sweet juices and softening their flesh.

The versatile plum begs to be baked into everything. From fruit-filled cakes to warm cobblers to tarts to tortes, here are 8 ways to use plums this summer.
