Caramel Pear Pudding

You could easily replace the pears with peaches or apples.  The caramel sauce soaks up in the pudding so I would suggest having some additional caramel sauce (purchased or made) on hand to serve with ice cream or whip cream.  Easy to make, easy to serve and feeds a group up to 12.


  • 5 cups pears, peeled and chopped chunky
  • 2 c flour
  • 1 c white sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (or more)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg (or more)
  • 1 c milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 3/4 c boiling water
  • 1/4 c butter, soft


  • Heat oven to 400F. Grease a 9″ x 13″ pan with cooking spray or butter.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, white sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  • Whisk in the milk and vanilla extract.  The mixture will be very thick and gooey.
  • Fold in the fruit and mix well.
  • Pour mixture into pan and spread evenly.
  • In a small bowl, mix the boiling water with the brown sugar and butter.  Stir until butter is melted and if need be, put in the microwave for 20 – 30 seconds to melt the butter and fully dissolve the sugar.
  • Pour the mixture evenly over top of the cake.
  • Bake for 50 minutes.
  • Serve warm with ice cream or whip cream.
