It isn't Christmas at our house without this cranberry pudding. We make it in the crock pot using the cake pan. Very easy and always a hit. My daughters now make it for their in-laws. When we are in Africa, cranberries aren't available so we us plums.
I tasted this dessert and it was delicious. Now, I did follow this recipe and it turned out weird. It`s like there was not enough liquid in it and not enough baking soda. It turned out like a ball of playdough, tough and rubbery.
I ship this frozen to all my relatives - they insist on it. It can thaw and be refrozen with no adverse affects. It is fat free before sauced! I steam and ship the pudding in fancy christmas tins! Perfect for gift giving
This recipe is an old family favorite for generations. You can make it in a cake pan and then cut into small squares. If you split the square in the middle 2 pieces it absorbs more sauce and turns into something quite spectacular!
This is the exact recipe my mother-in-law gave me 36 years ago. She had prepared it for her family every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I have made this recipe over seventy times myself! I cut the berries in half if they are large and I steam the pudding in a decorative German steamer (the ones that look like little bundt pans with lids). I also make the sauce in a double boiler. Pudding and sauce reheat well (separately) on lower power (70%) in the microwave oven.
I followed a reviewers advice and put the pudding in a 9x13 pan, increasing the ingredients 1 1/2 times so it would fit the pan better. I covered it with foil and baked it in another (little bigger) pan of water at 325. I think it turned out the way it was supposed to, the berries popped and it was not sour. My problem was with the sauce, it was gritty from the sugar. I am going to try it again since the flavor was good.
This is the best! My family looks forward to it every Christmas.
This is a delicious pudding cake. My recipe calls for an additional 1/2 cup light karo syrup and no salt at all. But other than that it is the same recipe. Don't hesitate to try it. It's really quite delicious!
