Recipe: Fresh Fruit Pudding

During berry or cherry season fresh-fruit PUDDING is an excellent one to make. This PUDDING is prepared in much the same way as a cake mixture, is combined with the fruit selected, and is then either steamed or baked.

(Sufficient to Serve Six)

  •  1/4 c. butter
  •  1/4 c. sugar
  •  2 c. flour
  •  1/4 tsp. salt
  •  3 tsp. baking powder
  •  1-1/4 c. milk
  •  2 egg whites
  •  1 c. berries or stoned cherries

CREAM the butter and add the sugar. Sift together the dry ingredients and add these alternately with the milk. Beat the egg whites and fold these in. Place a layer of dough in the bottom of a buttered baking dish, put a layer of fruit on top of this, add dough next and then fruit, and have a final layer of dough on top. Cover tight and steam for 1-1/2 or 2 hours or bake without the cover in a moderate oven for about 45 minutes. Serve with a fruit or a hard Sauce.
