Sugar Plum Pudding Recipe

I just have to tell you that you have to make this recipe! Sugar Plum Pudding is one of my favorite seasonal treats. It is so cozy, warm, gooey and full of spices. (In case you couldn’t tell, I love spices!!! Whenever I invent my own cookies recipes, I end up putting at least cinnamon in.) Don’t let the prunes scare you off… my ten-year-old brother loves this Sugar Plum Pudding recipe. Besides, I find that sometimes the tastiest desserts don’t tend to be the most attractive looking. I promise that this easy recipe will not disappoint!

Sugar Plum Pudding Recipe:

For the Cake:

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup buttermilk

3 eggs

3/4 cup oil

2 1/2 tsp.baking powder

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. allspice

1 tsp. nutmeg

1 tsp. cinnamon

1 cup ground prunes

For the Glaze:

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup buttermilk

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)

1 tsp. vanilla

1 Tbsp. corn syrup


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Mix all of the batter ingredients together. Pour batter into a greased 13×9 inch pan for 40-45 minutes or until knife comes out clean.

2. Now the fun part- cake demolition! You can use wooden spoon handle for this part, or you can also use a fork. Poke the cake thoroughly so that the glaze will soak into it. But remember… no need to completely demolish the poor thing! It should look somewhat like this in it’s mangled state (okay, you can call me a hypocrite):

4. Bring glaze ingredients just to a boil. Pour hot glaze over the cake.

5. Serve it warm with whipped cream. (Homemade whipped cream is especially good.)
