  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup evaporated nonfat milk

  3. Meanwhile, whisk eggs, flour, vanilla and the remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl until smooth. Whisk in evaporated milk.
  4. Drain the juices from the baked fruit into a small bowl, holding back the fruit with a metal spatula. Reserve the juices.
