Compliments of AT.    (And we both know how much you like it when i ''share'' fruit with you) :D
8-10 small red plums, VERY ripe
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups yogurt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup milk
1-2 cups powdered sugar
1. Heat oven to 350ºF and grease a 9x13 baking pan. Halve and pit the plums. Cut into quarters.

2. Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs until lightened and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and yogurt. Sift in the nutmeg, flour, salt, baking soda and powder. Beat until smooth.
3. Pour half the batter into the pan and smooth it out. Stick half the plum quarters cut side down in a pattern. Pour the other half of the batter over the plums, and layer the rest of the plums on top.

4. Mix the butter, brown sugar, flour and cinnamon until crumbly and sprinkle over plums. Bake for about 60 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Let cool for fifteen minutes.

5. Whisk the milk, lemon juice and sugar together until it is a thin but spreadable consistency. Drizzle over cake. Serve warm but not hot.
