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.

Delicious! More like a plum cobbler than a pudding. Note: dough topping came out a little raw in the middle after cooking only 10 minutes at the end. Would decrease temperature and increase topping bake time to 18-20 minutes to cook through. Other than that, this dessert was a real hit and the flavor was excellent. Will make it again!

My mom and I tried this recipe, but we may have used the wrong kind of plums. While the dish was very good, we were wondering just whether the supplier of this recipe could tell us if she used the small blue plums, red plums, or the larger black plums.

This turned out beautiful. I wasn't quite sure what baking mix was, I google'd it and got a quick recipe(add certain ratio of baking powder,soda and salt to the flour) sorry, I didn't write it down. I didn't have tapioca, so just omitted it(next time i'll put it in)but it was still excellent. I will post a pic on this pretty dessert!! Also I halved the recipe, I had 6 over-ripe plums in the fridge. I used soft butter instead of the margorine, to cut it into the dry ingredients to give it the "crumbly effect"
