This is a prune flan recipe from Brittany.
|185 g||stoned prunes|
|140 g||plain flour|
|2 tablespoons||rum (optional)|
Preheat the oven to 180C. Grease a shallow, 2-litre ovenproof dish.
Put the prunes in a saucepan with just enough water to cover. Simmer over low heat for about 10 minutes. The prunes should be tender but should still hold their shape. Drain the prunes, then place them in the base of the prepared dish.
Combine the flour and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually add the milk to the mixture, stirring vigorously with a wooden spoon until combined. Add the rum.
Carefully pour the batter over the prunes, then place in the preheated oven and bake for about 1 1/4 hours or until the top is browned and the filling has risen and is firm.
Serve warm or at room temperature.
