Virginia Peach Pudding....



In the comments today, Kathie from Island Sparrow asked for the recipe for Virginia Peach Pudding. Just so you know, this recipe also has a few other alias names: Apple Pudding, Blueberry Pudding, and I've made Cherry Pudding too. This is one of those family-style desserts that you don't eat anywhere but home. It's been a Regular around our table for years. I hope you'll enjoy it.

Virginia Peach Pudding
(thanks to Anne, a true Virginian!)

1/2 c. butter
1 c. sugar (may reduce it)
1/4 t. salt
1 c. milk
1 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. cinnamon
2+ c. peaches (canned/drained) or blueberries
or cherries or apples (cooked a little if frozen or fresh) or...

Melt butter in 1 1/2 to 2 qt. casserole dish. In a separate bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients to make a batter. Pour into the buttery dish. Pile the fruit in the center. Bake 375 degrees for 30-45 minutes, depending on how soft or crisp you like it. I bake it to a crispy golden brown. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream (and hot coffee!)

  5. Thanks Jody! This sounds very much like a favourite family dessert that we call batter pudding. We don't put raisins in. The batter is similar - we make a brown sugar sauce with butter, vanilla and boiling water and pour over the batter - then as it bakes, the cake rises up through the sauce. it's yummy! I'm going to try yours with blueberries or apples - I know my family will like it.

    Hope yo have a great weekend!
