This recipe comes from my Grandma Hoth. It’s very English as was she. (My parents have a small three-ring binder of her handwritten recipes–at least my Dad’s favorites. Things like this are family treasures!) This steaming dessert is perfect for a cold day and so simple to make.

Let’s get started.

Mix

Mix together to make a paste:
1 T. butter
1/2 c. milk
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Add:
1/2 tsp. vanilla,
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. chopped nuts.
Spread in small greased casserole.

sauce

For the sauce, stir together:
1 c. brown sugar
2 c. boiling water
2 T. butter

ready

Pour over batter and bake at 350° for 20-30 minutes.

serve

And there you have a delicious pudding cake. It’s good topped with a drizzling of fresh cream. (I was out of cream on this day–a very rare occurrence in this house.) Enjoy!

    Ooooh, this looks so good! I’m going to try it! I have a really easy bread pudding recipe, and this looks a lot like it.

    @Karen, My husband won’t eat bread pudding, but I like it.
    @Tamara, It’ is good, but the best part is how fast and easy it is.

    Thank you for this recipe, I have been searching for it for 2 yrs. My mom used to make this and it was a real family favorite. I lost her to cancer 3 yrs ago and I inherited this recipe but then 2 yrs ago our house burnt down and no other family member had a copy. This brings back so many great memories…Thank you so much.

    @Colleen- It sounds like you’ve had a rough few years. I’m so glad to have helped. Family recipes are treasured pieces of our heritage. This is one of my favorite Grandmother’s recipes.
