Reviews for Caramel and Pear Pudding
"Could canned pears be used in this recipe?"
"Everyone loved this one, it is a keeper!"
"What a yummy, easy to fix dessert. I put it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes since my crockpot was already in use. Came out great. Next time I'm going to double the boiling water and see if comes out more like a pudding cake"
"This was excellent. I served it with vanilla ice cream and it was a hit! I was worried you wouldn't be able to taste the pears but you definitely could."
"Made this pudding today and it was delicious. Turned out great. I took the lid off for the last half hour of cooking so the top the top of the pudding would dry out a bit. Loved being able to put it in the crock pot. Small portions are enough as it was quite rich and filling!!!"
