The pear harvest continues. Pear crumble, pear tarte tatin, poached pears in Marsala and the latest pear offering: Eve's Pudding with pears. Set the oven at 180, peel, core & slice 4 pears and place in a greased overproof dish. Scatter 3oz of brown sugar and some grated lemon peel over them. Cream 3oz buttter with 3oz caster sugar. Gradually add 1 beaten egg. Fold in 5oz self-raising flour with a little milk if too dry. Spoon the mixture over the pears and bake for 45 minutes. Eve's Pudding is traditionally made with apples. Maybe this version should be called Noah's Pudding?

Two Jewish men did hear about Eve's and Noah's pudding served in Winchester at the Whisperer, a fine establishment.
Once the order placed one says to the other ," my dear friend i got to tell you ,but i do think you terrible"
" oh yes " says the other one " I know, but my mother died yesterday."
"that is awful , what did she have?"
"Only a one bedroom flat"

Noah's pudding arrived on time

I cook something similar with chocolate powder, it is one of my favourites from Delia Smith.

Maybe it could be called Adam's pudding.
