Poached Pear & Marzipan Pudding

I was very pleased with this one, becouse it was such a dead simple pudding to make and absolutely effortless. The combination of the smoothness of the poached pear, the sweeteness of the marzipan and the crunchy dough on top just works very well. And to top it all off.... serve with some cool vanilla mascarpone or some vanilla icecream.

Makes 4
2 pears, halved, peeled and the core removed
4 tbsp caster sugar
4 dl water
1 vanilla pod, cut length wise and seeds removed
50g marzipan
150g butter, room temperature
100g caster sugar
2 eggs
100g flour
flaked almonds, for sprinkling

Add pears sugar, vanilla pod, vanilla seeds and water in a small pot and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and poach gently on low heat for 10 – 15 minutes.

Work the butter and sugar together in a bowl with a spatula. Add the eggs and continue working together. Add the flour and work to a dough.

Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Put ½ a pear and poaching syrup in each individual ramekin dish. Scatter some marzipan over and scoop a heaped tbsp of dough on top. Sprinkle some toasted almonds on top and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with some ice cream or vanilla mascarpone.

sæll gummi,

Var að elda þennan helvíti góða desert. Mjög ánægður með hann ; )
Öllum fannst hann góður, meira að segja fólki sem borðar ekki marsipan.
Ágúst Elvars dagði að það væri kannski gott að bæta við smá kanil.
