§ 16 to 20 prune plums, or 8 or so larger fruits—plums, peaches, etc.
§ 3/4 cup + 3 Tbsp. sugar, divided
§ 1 tsp. cinnamon
§ ½ t. nutmeg
§ 1/2 cup butter
§ 2 large eggs
§ 1 cup all-purpose flour
§ Pinch of salt
§ ½ t. baking powder
§ 1 t. vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350F and butter a pie plate or 2 qt. casserole dish. Pit and quarter your fruit and place in prepared dish.
Combine 3 T. sugar with cinnamon and nutmeg, and sprinkle 2 T. of the mixture over the sliced fruit.
Melt the butter in a saucepan or small frying pan and keep cooking it for about five minutes until it turns golden. Swirl and stir the butter as you watch it, because it can burn easily. When it becomes a lovely caramel brown under the foam, remove immediately from heat.
Slightly beat eggs, adding vanilla. Whisk together the flour, ¾ c. sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Pour the butter into a bowl and add flour mixture and eggs, mixing well.
