Wonderful recipe! It is exactly like the one passed down to me from my great-grandmother (from her mother) with one exception: the ingredients list read "butter the size of an egg, 3 teacups of flour, etc." Our family always called it Raisin Pudding, I read somewhere that this recipe originated in the early 1800s. I can well see why it has survived so long. When I was pregnant with my first child, I craved this yummy dish...guess that's why I ended up gaining 50 lbs! The only variation I sometimes make to this dessert is to add some chopped walnuts to the batter.

I cannot in all conscience give this a star rating because my guests were late and in my attempts to keep it warm, it became severely overcooked. It was still very very tasty, and I am going to make it again, but I had to review it for the Pick A Chef event..
