Vanilla Pudding with Raisins

Dreamy pudding that serves 8.

Preheat oven at 350 F.

- 3 whole eggs
- 2/3 cup agave syrup
- pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups sour cream (I used Organic Meadows - 14% MF)
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

Fold in:
- 1 cup jumbo raisins*

I placed the mixture into a porcelain quiche pan, buttered and floured. Bake until firm and puffed, and beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan ( ~ 35-45 min; check every 5 min after the first 35 min). A toothpick inserted into the center of the pudding should come out clean.

* I used President Choice Organic Jumbo Raisins - they turned out to be too big and sweet. Next time I'll choose regular sized raisins
** Can be modified into a very low carb dessert by taking away the raisins (or having berries instead), using rye flour/bran/chickpea flour instead of whole wheat, and stevia extract instead of agave syrup.
