Steamed Cranberry Pudding



  • 2 cups cranberries, cut or sliced
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/3 cups flour


  • 1 3/4 sticks butter or margarine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light cream or canned milk


  1. Pudding: Mix all together and steam for about one hour in greased tin cans filled 1/2 to 2/3 full. Cover with wax paper tied on loosely with string. This will keep the water off the top of the pudding when steaming.
  2. Sauce: Cook in double boiler until sauce is blended. This takes quite a long time. If you use the microwave, the sauce will blend in more quickly. Add vanilla extract, rum or brandy to taste. Serve warm over pudding.
