Simple Baked Plum Custard

  • 3 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2-3 large plum, sliced
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven 350 degrees F.  In a medium iron skillet (8-in), melt butter; add sugar and plums.  Cook until the plums have released their juices and are soft.  Arrange sliced plum in the skillet to bake; set aside to cool slightly. 

While plums are cooling, in a medium bowl, mix sugar and flour.  Combine eggs and milk, cream, and almond extract; add to the flour mixture and mix well.

Strain creamy mixture in a sieve and pour over arranged plums.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until custard is set.  Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.  Dust with powdered sugar.
