I wanted to make dessert last night, but was at a loss about what to make. Then when I decided I couldn't find a recipe I liked so I made it up. I was actually really happy with how it turned out (given my dodgy oven and the fact I've never made anything up before!) So I thought I'd share.

Pear and Berry Spongy Pudd

825 gram tin sliced pears - drained (but any fruit will work)
100 grams frozen berries
1.5cup flour
1.5 t baking powder
125g butter (rough guess I don't have scales)
1 c castor sugar
2 eggs
1/2 T castor sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t all spice


Place fruit in oven proof

Melt butter and first lot of sugar in microwave. DO NOT BOIL. Allow to cool slightly then beat in eggs one by one.

Sift flour and baking powder into butter mix and combine

Combine remaining sugar and spices, sprinkle over pudding

Bake at 180 degrees C for approx 55 minutes (my oven is dodgy so I cook everything at 200, so its a guess) until sponge is cooked.

Serve with ice cream or cream and ENJOY. Hope it works for you if you try it. Let me know I'd love feedback on my first ever recipe making attempt.


  1. ooh sounds yummy and looks great!

  2. YU-UM! I'm up for a go at that! (sucker for puddings in general here)...

  3. So good! I know what my next dessert will be!


Leave me a message, I'd love to hear from you! :-)
