Reine-Claude Plums and Pistachios Crumble cake

I just love cakes, there is nothing more comforting then a piece of cake in the middle of the afternoon. 

In rainy days like today, there is nothing more comforting! 

This is a classical cake from my childhood, veganized. In the original version you I use apples but using seasonal plums only added more juicy and yummines to this delicious cake. 

Try this recipe and use the fruit you have left, it’s great with any kind of fruit or nuts!
