Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 10 Plums, semi -ripe
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1/4 cup Milk
  4. 4 tbsp sugar, powdered
  5. 1 tsp vanilla extract
  6. 3 tbsp brown sugar
  7. 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  8. 1/4 Cup cream
  9. butter


  1. Set the oven to preheat at 180C.
  2. Prepare the plums. Wash and dry the fruit and then cut in half and carefully remove the seed leaving the halves of fruit as intact as possible. The seed tends to stay stuck so use a knife to get it out.
  3. Combine the milk, vanilla, and cream in a pan and then heat it all till it begins to bubble. Stir to mix and remove from the heat. Set it aside to cool.
  4. Whisk the eggs with the powdered sugar in a bowl.
  5. Add flour to the eggs, a little at a time, and whisk till it is all combined. Ensure that there are no lumps of flour.
  6. In a clean pie dish melt butter and swirl to coat the entire base of the dish.
  7. Place the halved fruit, cut face down, on the buttered pie dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the plums and into the spaces between the fruit and place the dish in the preheated oven. Cook the plums for 5 to 8 minutes.
  8. Mix the cooled milk/cream mix into the egg/flour mix, whisking it well. Remove the pie dish, pour this mix carefully over the baked fruit.
  9. Return the dish to the oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes till the custard is set and has a nice golden colour.
  10. Serve the clafoutis hot out of the oven with a sprinkling of icing sugar over it.
