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!
WOW, this is great! I used butter and Bing cherries in syrup. It's unbelieveable anything so easy can be so good. i"ll be forever grateful, Mirj.
I have now made this with frozen cherries and used the cherry juice instead of water. They were good
This recipe did not impress, mainly because of the amount of margarine. It was way too greasy. As for the "soupiness", I don't understand what others are complaining about. This type of pudding is supposed to have a lot of sauce on the bottom and I found it a bit too dry although I used all the liquid from the cherries.
I made this for my family only I used canned plums. OMG this is delicious. While they were eating they were already planning on the next time I made it and with which fruits...lol. I served this with some homemade ice cream. Great summertime dessert. thank you .
