Steamed Cranberry Pudding

Easy to make and delicious to eat using just a few ingredients. This steamed pudding recipe is traditional at Christmas and is served with hard sauce.

How to Make It

  1. Dissolve baking soda in hot water in a large bowl. Stir in molasses and 1 tablespoon sugar, then mix in cranberries and flour until well combined. Pour into a greased 6-cup steamer mold.

  2. Cover the mold and place it into a steamer basket over boiling water. Cover the steaming pot. Cook over medium heat for 1 hour before checking, but it will take about 1 1/2 hours total. A toothpick inserted into pudding should come out clean. Run a paring knife around the edges to loosen pudding and cool in the mold on a wire rack.

  3. Just before serving, make hard sauce: Heat 1 cup sugar, butter, cream, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through and smooth.
