This dessert is pure comfort food. There is nothing healthy about it! I found the original recipe for caramel apple self-saucing pudding on Food to Love, and planned to make it that way, but Oscar instead on using pear. Of course, it can still be made with apple, as long as the salicylates are OK.

- 100g white spelt flour
- 90g wholemeal spelt flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3/4 cups brown sugar

Low chemical/FAILSAFE, moderate salicylates.
If you don't have spelt flour, you can replace it with regular white and wholemeal flour.
The original recipe for this used apple instead of pear. If moderate salicyaltes are tolerated, replace the pear with 1/2 cup of chopped or grated Red or Golden Delicious apple (peeled).
