Mirabelle Plum Dessert

  • 1 hour

  • Desserts and Fruit

Ingredients: Per 6 servings

  • 1 lb plums
  • 4 eggs
  • 5 oz sugar
  • 2 cups milk
  • 7 oz all-purpose flour
  • 1 oz butter
  • 12 almonds, toasted and peeled
  • salt


Wash the plums: stone them and arrange neatly side by side on the bottom of an oven-dish, previously well buttered and sprinkled with sugar, laying them out with the cut part on the bottom. Work the yolks to a cream with the rest of the sugar. Add the egg whites beaten to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt, then blend in the butter and the flour, and dilute everything with the milk. Pour the preparation over the plums and tap the oven-dish so that the batter penetrates between the pieces of fruit, without leaving any gaps. Bake in a preheated oven at 425°F for 35-40 minutes. After this time, when cooked, turn out the dessert onto a large circular plate and fix onto each plum a toasted, peeled almond.
