Mary’s Baked Fruit

My family first sampled baked fruit years ago while dining out. They liked it so much I decided to create my own version. The result was this attractive and tasty dish.

    Made this for a Easter Sunday brunch. it was perfect with a baked ham platter. There are no canned plums anywhere in my area so I substituted a can of lychee's.

    I love this recipe. I made it for several years. It is so good and it is so easy. When it is baking the house smells like Christmas!
