    Me again sorry, just tryin to get to grips with things like SUNDAYS. Wont be too bad tomorrow off fishing for the day (yea i know, sad and boring)

    OK, No doubt like many folk on sundays we have our traditional sunday roast around 1pm time, then a sandwich around 6ish followed with a pudding.

    Ive made miself a chickpea cake (which i like cus i have wierd taste buds lol but i like something hot like custard all over it,

    Gently warm a vanilla, or banana and custard mullerlight, that might do the trick i have heard that a banana and custard one warmed over a banana is nice.

    1 level tbsp cornflour

    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Peel, halve and core the pears, sprinkle with lemon juice and place on a roasting tin, cut side up.
    2. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the blackberries and spoon over the pear halves. Pour a little water into the roasting tin, cover and bake for 20-25 minutes, until just tender.
    3. Meanwhile, blend the cornflour with a little of the milk and place in a pan with the remaining milk and vanilla essence. Cut the vanilla pod in half lengthways and scrape out the seeds. Add the pod and seeds to the pan, stirring constantly until boiling, then remove from the heat and discard the vanilla pod.
    4. Add the egg yolks to the pan along with the artificial sweetener and beat. Reheat gently until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    5. Place 2 pear halves on four warmed serving plates, spoon round the custard and serve garnished with fresh mint.

    Serves 4, 7 syns on red or green days (and you could use any combination of fruits)

    I think she means pudding rice - it's dried like normal rice you'd buy, not in a tin. Just make sure it says pudding rice on the packet. You'd be able to find it in the rice/pasta aisle or if it's not there it may be in the cake making aisle. Sorry that's all I can say - personally I can't stand rice pudding so have never looked for it, so I'm not much help!!

    Milk, Ground Nutmeg.
    To Bake
    . Use butter to grease a shallow ovenproof dish.
    . Place rice, sugar and milk in dish and stir to combine.
    . Sprinkle with a little nutmeg and bake in centre of a pre-heated oven until
    the skin is golden and the pudding creamy.
