Pudding recipe: cinnamon, apple and pear pots

The perfect pudding recipe is a must at this time of year. These cinnamon, apple and pear pots from Nico Ghirlando won’t disappoint. Complete with a pumpkin seed, Brazil nut and hazelnut crumble, they’re the ultimate autumnal treat.

Brazil nuts are a fantastic source of healthy fats, but are perhaps most famous for their high selenium content. In fact, Brazil nuts are the richest known food source for selenium. This important mineral plays a key role in supporting our immune system. Hazlenuts are another wellbeing wonder as a fantastic source of vitamin E and heart-healthy fats. They also contain vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5, B6 and B9 essential for energy and the overall health of the nervous system.

Serve this pudding recipe with an indulgent spiced homemade custard for a warming treat. Flavoured with cinammon, this is custard with a twist. Plus this sweet spice may also have a role in supporting women’s health. A small study by researchers at Columbia University found that cinammon may help women to regulate their menstrual cycle. The researchers say that women with polycystic ovary syndromewho took daily cinnamon supplements experienced nearly twice the menstrual cycles over a six-month period as women with the syndrome given an inactive placebo.
