Quite good, rather like the dessert often called "French apple pie", just fruit with a light cake-like top. Like others had suggested, I added vanilla, and allspice, and finally, sprinkled the topping with brown sugar. It took about 45 minutes to bake; top had a very thin crunchy layer but airy cake under it. My plums were small, and tart; I used15 of them, due to their smaller size. The finished product was a good blend of a tart fruit bottom and sweet cakey top. Definitely plan to serve this with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or even a mild pouring custard; you'll find it far more delightful that way! It kept well for two days, but then put it, covered, in the fridge, and it went downhill within 10 hours: got a bit mushy and too moist. Will make it again when I have too many plums, nectarines, or peaches, and will add more allspice to the fruit before putting on the topping layer.
