1poched pears in spiced sweet wine are really something delicious with a soft & flavourful texture. They go perfectly well with a creamy ginger pudding...let's enjoy !!!

yelds : 4

here's what we need :

3 hours

4 pears, 50g brown sugar, 1 vanilla pod, 1 cinnemon stick, 40cl sweet white wine, 1/2 organic lemon

the puddings : 40g very soft butter, 160g sugar, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon lemon ground zest, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 25cl milk

here's what we do :

peel lemon zest
peel pears, cut in 2 and pour lemon juice all over so they won't oxydize & blacken

pour wine into a saucepan on medium heat with brown sugar, vanilla pod cut in 2 & grated, cinnemon stick
bring to a boil

add pears with lemon zest and leave to simmer for 15 minutes then in the fridge for 3 hours...

meanwhile, let's cook the pudding : preheat your oven at 320°F
whisk sugar & butter together until light & fluffy, add egg yolks & whisk again
add flour & baking powder
pour lemon juice, ground ginger & lemon zest
mix in with milk

whisk egg whites to picks & add carefully to mixture
