Madeleine Pudding: A French Twist on an Old Favorite

Today while searching for an easy way to use up leftover madeleines, I came across a mouth-watering recipe which takes these traditional French cakes to a whole new level.

Bursting with warm  fall flavors like nutmeg and cinnamon, Pear and Walnut Madeleine Pudding, as seen on From Which Things Grow, is a delectable union of traditional bread pudding and France's favorite shell-shaped treat.

Enjoyed fresh from the oven, with a dab of whipped cream, this comforting recipe hits the spot like a dream.

Pear and Walnut Madeleine Pudding

Pear and Walnut Madeleine Pudding 
 (4-6 servings)

1/2 cup pear, cubed
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
10 madeleines, cut into quarters
1 tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 350℉.  Grease 4-6 ramekins (depending on size) with the butter. 
Place ramekins on a baking sheet.

In a bowl, combine eggs, cream, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and salt. 
Whisk to incorporate thoroughly.

Divide the pears, walnuts and madeleines evenly between the ramekins, then pour the liquid mixture over them. 
Allow the madeleines to soak about 10-15 minutes before placing them into the oven.

Bake the puddings for 25-30 minutes or until set.
