Plum Clafouti

Well Fall has finally arrived and I am sure most of us are
thankful for that.    It has been a long hot summer.

I plan on making this wonderful recipe for 
dessert tonight and thought I would share it.

Italian Prune Plums are in season right now and are so delicious.   I remember my Mother
making Plum Dumplings with them.  

Plum Clafouti

6 tablespoons white sugar, divided
14 Italian prune plums, halved and pitted
3 eggs
1 1/3 cup milk
2/3 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons confectioner's sugar

Preheat oven to 375°    Butter a 10" pie plate, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar over the bottom

Arrange the plum halves, cut side down, so that they cover the entire bottom of the pie plate.  Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar over the top of the plums.   In a blender, combine the remaining 3 tablespoons of sugar, eggs, milk,  flour, lemon zest, cinnamon, vanilla and salt.    Process until smooth, about 2 minutes.   Pour over the fruit in the pan.

Bake for 50- 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm and lightly browned.  
 Let stand 5 minutes before slicing.

Dust with confectioners sugar before serving.
