  1. Preheat the oven to 190 C. Butter a 25cm fluted flan tin and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the sugar over the bottom.
  2. Arrange the plum halves, cut side down, so that they cover the entire bottom of the pie dish. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of sugar over the top of the plums.
  3. In a blender, combine the remaining sugar, eggs, milk, flour, lemon zest, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Pour over the fruit in the pan.
  4. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until firm and lightly browned.
  5. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Dust with icing sugar before serving.
