Mirabelle Cake

Mirabelle plums are one of my favourite fruits. They usually get picked around mid-August, and that always reminds me that it's still summer, but it is also slowly coming to an end. Of course the first leaves aren't falling yet - thank God! - but it's also not strawberry and asparagus time anymore. The days are getting shorter again and the beautiful light of the morning makes its appearance a bit later tha just a few weeks ago. 
So, I guess we should still use that rest of summer to make all the delicious, fresh summer recipes we still have up our sleeve! I hope you are all able to enjoy a bit of sun and fun this season!!
