Pear Pudding: Budino di Pera
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks, and fold them into the fruit mixture. Butter a pudding mold or quiche pan and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Turn the fruit mixture in to the pan and level with a spatula. Place the pan in a water bath and bake for 20 minutes, and serve cool or cold.
