Ingredients

  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 3/4 c Milk I used whole milk
  • 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 c All Purpose Flour
  • 2 c Plums, pitted and cut into 1/4's or 1/6's
  • Butter To grease pie plate
  • Confectioners Sugar for Dusting Optional

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350' F and lightly butter a 9" heavy pie plate. (I used my Pyrex glass pie plate)

  2. In blender add eggs, milk, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and salt and blend well (30-60 seconds).

  3. Add flour and blend again until smooth (60 seconds) and then pour into pie plate.

  4. Sprinkle (or arrange) the plums over the top and bake in oven 25-30 min.  Clafoutis will be lightly browned and should still have a slight jiggle in the middle.  The proper consistency is like a flan-in between a cake and a custard and it is best achieved by not over cooking.

  5. Let cool slightly then serve warm sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

    If serving later, rewarm slightly before serving.
