Plum Gratin

Several weeks back I was thrilled to guest blog at Danica's Daily.  If you haven't seen it, be sure and check it out.  Danica has wonderful healthy food and the most positive attitude around.

Here is the recipe I shared with Danica's readers.  This gratin is a quick dessert made with any fruit and a few other simple ingredients.  With many plums to use up, I could think of no better dish.

Plum Gratin

1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon flour
1 1/2 pounds plums, pitted and sliced (no need to peel)
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup almond meal/flour (bought mine at Trader Joe's)
2 teaspoons powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400°F.  Spread butter on inside of 1-quart pie pan or gratin dish and sprinkle with flour to coat.  Place plum slices tightly in pan in several layers.

In medium bowl, beat eggs and sugar with mixer on high speed for 4 minutes until light yellow and fluffy.  Whisk in almond meal.  Pour evenly over plums.  Place in oven and bake 25 minutes, or until top is dark golden brown and firm.

Cool gratin completely on wire rack.  Cut into wedges and sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.  Makes 6 servings, 4 points plus and 198 calories per serving.
