Steamed Cranberry Pudding
cranberries, cut or sliced
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/3 cups flour
Mix all together and steam for about one hour in greased tin cans filled 1/2 to
2/3 full. Cover with wax paper tied on loosely with string. This will keep the
water off the top of the pudding when steaming.
1 3/4 sticks butter or margarine
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light cream or canned milk
Cook in double boiler until sauce is blended. This takes quite a long time. If
you use the microwave, the sauce will blend in more quickly. Add vanilla
extract, rum or brandy to taste. Serve warm over pudding.
