Hasty Pudding

Break out the Cool Whip.

The ordinary way:

Spray an 8x8 pan with non-stick spray. In a medium mixing bowl, combine:
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup raisins (or chopped apples, or blueberries)
1/2 cup milk
2T melted butter
Spread it in the pan

The sauce:
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp flour
1 Tbsp butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups boiling water

Carefully pour over the batter, and bake at 350. I forget how long, around half an hour, until a toothpick comes out of the pudding clean.

The Chocolate way:
Omit the raisins from the batter, and add a quarter or half a cup of cocoa.
Add 5-6 Tbsps cocoa to the sauce.

Try not to be a pig, eh?

I'm new to your blog but I love what I've seen. Quick question about the Hasty Pudding.

Would it be criminal to add touches of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, or other spices to the non-chocolate version?

Hi Midge!

Oh, that sounds lovely. Please let me know how it comes out!

I also want to try it with the tinned mandarin oranges.
