As BooBoo says: Dee-wishish!

Plum Upside-Down Cake
Do you have plums coming out of your ears? Or some that are not quite great enough to eat out of hand? Make this. I used the Plum-Rosemary Upside-Down Cake recipe in How to Cook Everything Vegetarian by Mark Bittman. This in one of the recipes in the book that is not vegan but it is easy enough to "fix". I omitted the rosemary (didn't sound good that night), made "buttermilk" with 1 cup of soymilk and 1 tsp apple cider vinegar, substituted margarine and applesauce for the butter, and used egg substitute for the 2 eggs. I thew it together one night when a couple friends were over and everyone enjoyed it. The juices from the plums mix with the brown sugar and make this yummy sauce that soaks into the cake when you invert it on to a plate. Dust it with confectioners sugar just before serving for a pretty contrast.

I do like the chocolate hemp powder… it tastes really good in a shake with almond milk and a banana.
