Steamed Cranberry Pudding
For the last few years I have been looking forward to a very big craft show in a near by city so that I can buy Cranberry Pudding. My friend, Lisa, showed them to me when we went together and I have bought one every year since. When I bought it this year, I looked at the ingredients and thought, why not see if there is a recipe on the internet? The very first search result looked exactly right and when I made it, it was exactly like it! Now I can save that $20 that I spent on the pudding. The only real expense is the cranberries, but one package makes 2 puddings, so very minimal.
I found the recipe on All Recipes and you can find the original here. I only made one change to decrease the amount of molasses a little bit. So here is my revised recipe;
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 c hot water
1 Tbsp sugar
1/3 c molasses
1 1/2 c flour
2 c fresh cranberries
In a bowl, dissolve the baking soda in the water. Add sugar and molasses, then stir in flour and cranberries. Pour into greased bunt pan and cover with tin foil. Place in a pot with 1" simmering water and simmer on low heat, covered, for 1 hr 10 mins - 1 1/2 hrs.
The best part about this recipe is the sauce, which calls for;
1/2 c butter or margarine
1 c sugar
1/2 c heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
Cook until hot and simmer for a minute or two. Serve over each piece of cranberry pudding.
This pudding is so good! I can't stop thinking about it. Thank you Jane Walker for posting your recipe on All Recipes!
