Banana, Pear & Walnut Self-Saucing Pudding
A pudding that's perfect for those days when you're in the mood for some comfort. The sauce is just the right amount of sweetness and thickens nicely as it cools. And there's something incredibly delightful about striking a piece of warmed pear in a bowl of delicious pudding.
- 1 1/2 cup Oat Flour
- 1/2 cup Almond Flour
- 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- 1 cup Mashed Banana about 2 and 1/2 bananas
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Soy Milk
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1 x 410g can Pear Quarters drained
- 1/2 cup Walnuts chopped
For the sauce
- 3/4 cup Water
- 1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
- 6 scoops Banana Nice Cream optional
- Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F).
- In a large bowl, whisk together the oat flour, almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
- Add the mashed bananas, soy milk and vanilla. Mix until well combined. The batter will be thick.
- Place the pear quarters on a 10×7-inch baking dish and pour over the batter using a spoon to spread and flatten. Sprinkle over the chopped walnuts. Set aside.
- In a small saucepan, warm the water over medium heat. Once warm, remove from heat and add the coconut sugar to the water. Whisk until the sugar is almost fully dissolved.
- Slowly pour the sugar water over the pudding batter. I recommend pouring over the back of a spoon, this way you won’t make holes in the batter and distribute it more evenly.
- Bake for 25 minutes, or until the top looks cooked. Remove from heat and let cool 5-10 minutes. You will end up with a moist banana cake with a thick sauce at the bottom. Serve warm, topped with banana nice cream.
