Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; generously grease a 10-inch baking pan with butter (2-quart capacity).
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt; stir and make a well in the center.
  3. Add eggs and whisk until the batter is smooth.
  4. Stir in the rum, milk, and melted butter.
  5. Arrange the prunes in the bottom of the baking dish; pour batter on top of the prunes.
  6. Bake until golden and the custard is set, about 35 minutes.
  7. Serve in wedges, sprinkled with confectioners' sugar; enjoy warm.
  8. If you are really ambitious, flip it out of the baking dish like a flan.
