Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  In a small bowl, combine flour and sugar.  Arrange half of plum slices in a 10" pie plate.  Sprinkle on half of the flour mixture.  Repeat with the remaining plums/flour  mixture.

Mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar and baking powder in a food processor.  Add butter and pulse until crumbly.  With processor running, pour in cream and quickly mix.  Place spoonfuls of the cornmeal mixture on top of the plumb, leaving a hole in the middle.
