  1. In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, baking soda, 1 cup of white sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir in the milk, egg, and butter until well blended. Toss the cranberries in the remaining 1/4 cup of flour to coat, then fold them into the batter.
  2. Pour the batter into a greased round casserole dish with a lid, place the lid on, and then cover again with aluminum foil. Place the dish into a large roaster or stock pot, and fill with 3 to 4 inches of water. Place the lid on the outer pot, and cover with aluminum foil. Turn the heat to medium-high, and steam for 2 hours. Add more water if necessary after the first hour.
  3. For the sauce, mix together 1/2 cup of white sugar, brown sugar, butter, and heavy cream in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir occasionally until the mixture comes to a full boil. Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Refrigerate until chilled, then beat with an electric mixer until smooth.
  4. Serve slices of the steamed pudding with the brown sugar sauce, and a dollop of whipped cream.

Delicious pudding. This worked very well in a traditional pudding form. I noticed some of the reviewers had problems with the sauce. I assume that is due to the wording "1 cup sweetened whipp...

I had to steam this well beyond the 2 hours, unfortunately, but I don't think that was due to any fault on the recipe's part. I will make this again but, the next time, I will definitely add mo...

Absolutely the best dessert I have ever had. I pick fresh cranberries every year and can't believe how delicious this was. I took this to work and everyone asked for the recipe. I'll make it aga...

Really nice - used an antique pudding mold and did not have time for the sauce (used storebought - ugh), but the pudding is delightful. Coarsely chopping the cranberries helps distribute the fl...

This was unbelievable. I wowed my entire extended family at Christmas dinner with this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly -well, I coarsely chopped the crans first to spread out the tartne...

I chose this recipe over the other cranberry puddings because of the ingredients - especially the cinnamon and nutmeg. We love nutmeg, but 1 tsp. is WAY too much - will reduce to 1/4 tsp. next ...

This is very easy to make, only used 1/4 teaspoon numeg and added 1 teaspoon vanilla. Only boiled for 1 1/2 hours and was enough time. Turned out perfect.

Very good! Next time I make it I'll only steam it for 1 hr. and 45 minutes. I went the full 2 hours and it seemed alittle over cooked to me. But, it was great. Thanks you for a great recipe....

The cranberry pudding was great. The sauce didn't turn out. I will try it again next year.
