Fresh Plum Flan

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Elly in Canada

I make this often, especially in the fall as you can use any fruit you like - apples peaches pears! I have also used canned plums (2 - 14oz cans, must drain thoroughly) Recipe taken from Anne Lindsay's Light Kitchen cookbook.

I thought this was more like a cake than a flan but it turned out to be really good anyway. I took a bit of a risk as I'd already stewed my plums and I was afraid that it wouldn't cook because of the juiciness. Funnnily enough it didn't even need 45 minutes! Thanks for the recipe!
