Simple Plum Pudding

Robin, this sounds like a really good recipe but I have to ask: where the heck are the plums? Seems to me if it wants to call itself a "Plum Pudding Recipe", it should at least display a few plums. This is like a pecan pie recipe that doesn't call for pecans, or a strawberry shortcake recipe that doesn't call for strawberries. What's up with that? (12/15/2004)
