My doubts went away once I took this pudding out of the oven! Could not believe with the water poured over the batter that it would come out well. I do advise greasing/spraying the bottom generously since it wants to stick. I added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla to add flavor. The whipped cream is a must on top. It had a pudding texture. I baked it at 355 degrees for 30 minutes. Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #34 Event November 2009.

So quick to whip up and loved by everyone - gorgeous thick sauce at the bottom - best served warm with cream - I used dried cherries due to a lack of currants but I think dried apricots would be also great in it so many thanks to Stardustannie and her Nana.

Hmm. This was easy to make but after cooking for 1 hour at 350F it still wasn't done. It still had gooey liquidy parts. I don't know if it was my flour so I won't give it a starred rating. I tried the cooked parts with vanilla ice cream and it reminded me of bread pudding. It has a very simple sweet flavor. It probably would be good with cinnamon.
