Plum clafoutis

A clafoutis is a baked French pudding traditionally made with cherries and easily adaptable to other stone fruit. ~Donna Hay Magazine

A very simple & fast dessert and it would have been a fantastic dessert if the pudding was less eggy.I found the pudding a little eggy despite using vanilla sugar & vanilla bean paste instead of ordinary sugar alone. Maybe 2 large eggs would be sufficient enough.Just an opinion.
