Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Grease a shallow 2 quart baking dish.
  2. Place the pitted prunes in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a simmer, and cook until the prunes are tender but still hold their shape, about 10 minutes. Drain the prunes and arrange them in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  3. Whisk together the flour, white sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk in the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon until combined. Stir in the rum. Pour the batter evenly over the prunes.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F, and bake until the filling is firm, has risen a little, and the top is browned, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Absolutely fantastic! Like the previous reviewer, I needed to use up some very old prunes. This is insanely easy to make and extremely delicious. I followed the recipe to a T, except for using an 11x7 inch baking dish, using soy milk, and using half of a vanilla pod instead of the vanilla sugar. Tried it warm about 20 minutes after taking it out of the oven and it was perfect. The baking time was spot on. I too am excited to try it cold tomorrow. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that I will make for years to come! ***** Update: I tried this cold after it was in the fridge all night. Surprisingly, I like it MUCH better warm or at room temperature.

I wanted to use leftover prunes and found this recipe. I made it as written with the exception of the vanilla sugar. I added 1 tsp vanilla instead. The presentation was impressive, the preparation simple and the result was delicious!!!! My husband was equally impressed. We just ate it, warm after about ten minutes. I want to try it cold tomorrow. Thanks for a great recipe!

Excellent recipe! I did not have baking powder so, I separated the eggs, put the yolks with the flour, sugar, milk,ect.. blended them in a blender then, I whipped/folded the whites in last. Baked beautifully. Used some real vanilla bean too...Yummy
