A question about a recipe: Simple Summer Peach Cake

I should be working right now but I've got five perfectly ripe black plums calling my name to bake something with them. Has anyone tried making this cake with plums?

I made it with plums and it turned out beautifully. Altogether delicious. The plums were a little tarter than most ripe peaches. I reduced the sugar, too. Highly recommend. ;o)

Thanks so much Amanda. Plums worked great! Love this recipe.

I haven't but I've made many cakes with plums folded (or pressed) into the batter, and I think they'd work well in this cake.
