This was awesome...I used a pint of blueberries in place of the plums and baked it in a glass pie plate. It was a teeny bit heavy in the middle but I am sure it was because of the glass pie plate and next time I'm going to use an 8 x 8 baking tin for better heat distribution. Husband says I can make it again and he's not a fan of custard desserts or dessert in general
A very easy dessert, so easy that I may use it with different fruits often during winter.I used whole fresh plums, and served with ice cream. It was a winner. It has a good texture not too heavy. Thanks for sharing.
This was pretty good, but I did get a little confused as to which I should use, plums or prunes. I do know they are the same thing, but one is dried, and since the recipe itself called for prunes, I used prunes. It has a nice texture to it and was enjoyed by me and my hubby with a scoop of ice cream with it. I will try making this again with plums and see how it turns out. Thanks
