The official (French) name of this dish is plum and frangipane tarte. Frangipane sounds very fancy but it’s actually just a word to describe an almond flavoured sweet cream which is used when preparing various desserts and cake. It is a central element to this dish, which is like a French Bakewell tart!
It's peak time for plums at the moment, so they are cheap and plentiful.
