- Place the donuts in a baking dish (place it a little upright and at an angle). Tuck the cooled plums in between the donuts.
- Whisk the eggs in a bowl and then add milk, cream, vanilla extract and sugar and whisk well. Pour into a jug and then pour over the donuts and plums. Drizzle with the remaining plum juices and bake in the oven for between 30 and 40 minutes, or until the custard is set and donuts are nicely puffed up.
- Dust with icing sugar and serve!
