O.k...I must admit this is a hard one to review.
It was so easy to make, and everything goes so well together when you make this. I used fresh plums and to cut out any tart taste I sprinkled some brown sugar on the base before adding the halved plums.
I actually loved this............. BUT DH hates plums and loves custard, he loved the plums not the custard. DS was the same and DD & I both do like like custard that much but loved this.....go figure!
I think the problem is not the recipe, it is the texture!
The custard does have an unusual texture in the mouth, but great flavours. Sweet yet tart if that makes any sense.
DD and I enjoyed it so much Jan!
Although left overnight it does tend to go a rather purple colour, but still taste great!
This recipe does go so very well with cream or ice-cream and I think this is a must to offset the texture.
Overall I think this is fantastic and will make it again, but maybe just for 2 of us! ;-)

I was not a big fan of this one. The texture was a bit odd- not quite custard. The flavor was also lacking something- fresh, tart fruit would probably work better than the canned variety. I would recommend making custard and serving it with fruit rather than try this again.

Yum. I made this with fresh plums and raspberries. Added a teaspoon and a half of rosewater to the batter which was made with 4 egg yolks (rather than the 3 whole eggs) that were left over from another recipe. I also forgot to warm the milk and grease the dish but it turned out beautifully and elicited satisfied grunts of approval from the BF. Thanks Jan, it really is fool proof!

Wasn't nice. Sort of like rice pudding gone wrong without the rice.

This was really nice. I would like to try it again with fresh plums once they're in season here. Very easy to make.

This was good. I use 6 fresh plums, quartered, and that was a bit too much. The dish was very full and the plums gave out a lot of juice which curdled the custard a bit, but it still tasted fine.

I made this with fresh plums, pitted and halved, enough to cover the base of a 10 inch oval gratin dish. Extremely quick and easy to make. I had about 1/4 cup too much custard for the dish. It took more like 40 mins to cook, but looked, smelled and tasted delicious. My sons, aged 8 and 11 loved it, and are looking forward to the leftovers cold tomorrow. I guess that means I'd better put down that spoon....
