Ginger Pear Lazy Daisy Duff
Pear-Ginger Lazy Daisy Duff approach...
The last of the pears ended up in a delicious Pear Ginger Lazy Daisy Duff this week. The LD Duff recipe came from an apprentice years ago and ended up in the RavenCroft cookbook. Tried and true, the Lazy Daisy Duff is another seed recipe that can be adjusted to incorporate any ripe fruit or berry available. Pears and ginger combine well and were on the counter, so I created a quick gingerbread using the LD Duff recipe.
