Plum Pudding

Plum Pudding

domestic engineer 0

"An old fashioned plum pudding that was passed down to me from my grandmother, with a modification of using baking mix instead of making the top from scratch. I serve it with ice cream or what I call a Dip made from milk and flavored to taste with cinnamon and vanilla. I let each individual pour on the amount of dip they would like from a small pitcher."

A delicious recipe, not your regular pudding.

I give this a great score for flavor, but the consistency was quite runny, it actually seemed more like what we would call a cobbler. It coagulated once I put it in the fridge, but then the crus...
