I have worked my way through our plum vodka which we made last year. The recipe is on the blog but having now enjoyed the plum vodka I was left with the plums which had been sitting in the base of the jar. As I had emptied the jar of alcohol it seemed obvious that the plums could now be thrown. Then I ate one. Oooohh! I quite liked its addled steeped lusciousness. Now I could have eaten them on their own and been quite happy but I thought “why not turn it into a pud?”. And do you know this one is quite decadently delicious, – but economic too. Try it with a splash of cream it really will give you a smile! And let’s face facts I have to face Fanny Klunge every morning so I need something to smile about.
1 dst spoon of vanilla paste
100g caster sugar
2 large eggs separated
50g self raising flour
Decanted and de-stoned plums from the plum vodka kilner jar
Preheat oven to 180°C/340°F
Place the sugar, butter, vanilla, and yolks into a mixing bowl and whisk up
Add the flour with the milk
Butter up a baking dish
Place the plums in the base
Whisk up the egg whites till stiff and add to the yolk mixture
Pour the whisked up mixture over the plums
Cook for 40 minutes until it has a light brown topping
Leave to cool for half an hour and then serve with a small drop of cream!
