Georgia’s Fruit Pudding

I recently fell in love with Georgia Pellegrini’s book Food Heroes and will be giving it to various friends for the holidays. The recipe below is my adaptation of Georgia’s grandmother’s fruit pudding, which I think you’ll enjoy.

This light and easy to eat dessert is a perfect Christmas pudding.  It’s basically made with dried fruit and eggs and won’t leave you and your Christmas guests with the typical high carb hangover that often results from holiday treats. Enjoy and thanks Georgia!

I recently wrote an article for Natural Solutions Magazine which was featured on the cover, if you can believe that (I can’t!).  The subject is my gluten free journey, and also provides information on the various high protein flours that I use.  You can find a copy of Natural Solutions at any Barnes & Noble in the country.  My article is in the November issue of Natural Solutions (which hit newsstands a couple of weeks late), in case you’d like to take a look at it.

  1. I did try this pudding and it is wonderful.. My baby adores it too. I did add a bit of honey since I have a pretty big sweet tooth. Since it was Christmas I subbed cranberries for some of the prunes. I also topped it with a mix of nuts and some coconut. This is deffinately a new favorite for me, so easy to make and a great was to use our farm fresh eggs when we have an abundance! Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  2. I just made this and it’s really light and fluffy — not what I expected. I thought it’d be more the consistency of plum pudding but its like a cupcake. Is that correct or did I just do it wrong? Overblend? Overbaked?

  3. Fruit Pudding…They look so delicious and satisfying. I work with Better Recipes and am constantly seeking new and different dishes. Right now I am focusing on Christmas desserts and this looks great.
