This was very good, very easy, very inexpensive...what a winner! The first time I made it, I used a pan that was too small and had a problem with overflow (even then, it was tasty). I just made it tonight in a standard glass Pyrex loaf pan, and it was perfect. I used real butter instead of margarine, and the fruit I chose was a tin of Very Cherry Fruit Cocktail -- delicious! Thanks for this easy recipe, Mirj; it'll become a regular dessert in my home, guaranteed.

This was a great recipe that I through together in a couple of minutes. I served it warm on a cold winter day with whipped cream on top and got lots of compliments. I poured in all the juice from the cherries and found the bottom a little too soupy. Definately will make again and experiment with other fruits.

Excellent. I fixed this recipe one morning for something to have with coffee. I used pitted tart cherries and it turned out very well, sweet, but retained just enough tartness. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for posting this Mirjam.

Wonderful! It doesn't get any easier than this. I used cherries and loved it. Can't wait to experiment with other fruit. I used an 8x8 pan and had no problem with spillage. I put this in my "keeper" notebook. Thanks so much, Mirj!!!

You may have some spillage problems with the 8x5 inch dish, although I never have had any trouble with it. Just to be on the safe side, use an 8 inch square baking dish. You may get a shallower pudding, but more area for ice cream to top!

Easy and very delicious - had no cherries on hand so used canned plums. Will definitely make it again, and again!

I have now made this with frozen cherries and used the cherry juice instead of water. They were good
