Simple Plum Clafoutis

Simple can be gorgeous! Simple Baked Plum Custard The joy of this simple custard is that it is often served at room temperature and dusted with powdered sugar.  Although plums are a crowd pleaser in this French dessert, cherries are traditional. Arranging the plums on top of the custard is elegant perfection in itself, but mine seemed to move when I poured the custard over them.  Oh well, I did say I went the rustic route, didn't I?
