Give Me Something Hot! Caramel Pudding

This morning I'm 'iced in' with my husband and kids as a thick layer of ice over a half inch thick covers everything in its path. Roads are treacherous, many closed completely, and of course school is not in session.

In honor of ice cold days and frigid, ice filled nights I give you a dessert best served hot - Caramel Pudding.

Caramel Pudding

2 T shortening
2 T sugar
1 egg
1 c flour
3/4 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 c milk

1 1/2 c sour cream
3/4 c sour milk (buttermilk or make it sour by adding lemon juice/vinegar)
2 1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c milk

Beat shortening and sugar together till creamy. Add egg and beat hard for 2 minutes. Sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add to creamed mixture alternately with the milk. Put dough in the bottom of a baking tin. For the sauce - using an egg beater, mix together the sour cream, sour milk, sugar and flour. Pour the sauce over the dough and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes. As this bakes the sauce will sink to the bottom and the dough comes to the top to make a perfect dessert. Serve hot.Print Friendly and PDF
