Baba's 1/2 Hour Pudding

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Raelenes

This is a recipe that my mother used to make for us when we were kids. It became my brothers favorite. It's a great winter dessert, very simple and easy, one dish clean up. When ready you will have a delicious cake with a sweet sauce. This recipe asks for nutmeg, however if that is not your favorite spice flavour I'm sure you could substitute cinnamon and it would turn out just as great. This recipe can also be adjusted using low fat milk, soy, whole wheat flour etc.

I followed the directions, using pumpkin pie spice instead of nutmeg. I wasn't sure what to expect from a recipe called pudding, but described as cake. It ended up like neither, but more like spicy bread pudding with topping sauce. I scooped some warm into a bowl, added some ice cream and spooned the sauce over all. YUM! This would be excellent after Thanksgiving dinner, and using gingerbread spices for Christmas dessert. Thanks for posting Raelene. Made and enjoyed for PAC Spring '09.
