Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Dissolve the baking soda in the hot water. Stir in 1 tablespoon of sugar and molasses, then mix in the cranberries and flour. Pour into a greased 6 cup steamer mold.
  2. Cover the mold, and place into a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover the steaming pot. Cook over medium heat for one hour before checking, but it will take about 1 1/2 hours total. A toothpick inserted into the pudding should come out clean. Loosen the edges, and cool on a wire rack in the mold.
  3. Make the hard sauce just before serving: Heat the unsalted butter, cream, 1 cup sugar and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook stirring constantly until heated through and smooth.

This is a great pudding but 2 tsps of baking soda is too much. Hence the reason it hits the top of the tin and also the taste of the baking soda is overpowering. 1 tsp. is adequate and I have even made it with 1/2 tsp. Hope this is helpful.

Yum! I recently bought a similar pudding at a Craft show and was hooked! This recipe used the same ingredients listed on the label of the one I bought and it turned out great! I don't have a steamer mold so I just used a loaf pan covered tightly with aluminium foil. Thanks for the recipe.. it will surely be a tradition in our family from now on!

This recipe has been in my family for over 50 years -- every year it is a given at Christmas or Thanksgiving meal. This is the first time I have ever seen the recipe in print other than my own!! It makes a beautiful presentation on china plate with holly and cranberries around.
