I first came across this traditional French dessert on a cruising blog and thought it would fit in well with the ingredients I usually have onboard.  As with most recipes, it can be adapted to what you have and what you like.

  • ¾ cup of flour
  • ½ cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of milk (I’ve heard it works well with powdered milk)
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ~1 cup pitted prunes, soaked in brandy or other spirit (or use any dry/canned fruit of your choice)

Put the sugar in a deep bowl.

Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well (whisk)

Add the milk and whisk.

Add the flour and whisk.

Add the fruit and pour into a well buttered baking dish (I used a 27 x 18cm pan that fits my galley oven).

Bake for ~45 minutes or until a knife comes out dry.
