Made this with peaches and 100g of sugar. Stirred in 100g blueberries for the last 5 minutes. Forgot to add the vanilla pod, but still truly delicious. Really fantastic.

Devine. it smells amazing when its cooking. we took it out after 16 minutes and it was perfect. indeed, perhaps better for a desert recipe than breakfast, but this is our first time making it. and we're not complaining. Might throw in a dash of cinnamon next time and try a pear in the mix - topped with blueberries.

I loved this pudding and it was sooo easy! Really tasty and great for an informal dinner party. We had nectarines and various coloured plums, and served it with vanilla ice-cream. Would also be nice with Mascarpone too...yum!

This is a really tasty desert and is also great cold. I found it a little too sweet so I reduced the sugar and it still tasted great.

This was a real hit. We made it over and over again during the summer months using a variation of stone fruits depending on what was ripe at our local farm shop. The cardamom pods add an extra dimension and kept our guests guessing. We served it to our guests who claims he 'hates puddings' and he loved it!
