French Pear Pudding

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by ImPat

From a low GI Cookbook. Times are estimated. Note 1 - Try using chopped dried pear instead of the sultanas to further reduce the GI value. Note 2 - You can use a low-calorie sweetener suitable for cooking instead of the sugar and this will slightly reduce the energy content, carbohydrate content and GI value of the finished dish. Given a low GI rating.

Yummy although I made this a bit differently than written. First I used 3 smaller pears which were Bartletts grown in Hood River, Oregon. The pears were pureed then I proceeded with the recipe replacing the sultanas with Oregon-grown dried cranberries. Meyer lemon juice and zest replaced standard lemon. I don't know if "pudding" in Australian is the same as pudding in the States which is very smooth and no lumps. This was very delicious and took close to 1 hour to bake. I used whole milk, too.
