I think it’s time to add some of these recipes to the online collection ~ don’t you?
I don’t even know the title of this little cookbook. The cover is long gone. It belonged to my mother and included are recipes from women all across Canada. It’s probably a Women’s Institute cookbook but I’m not sure.
Molasses Angel Pudding, the dessert featured here, is a long-time favourite of our family. It’s called a pudding but it’s actually more like a very moist muffin or cake. The recipe comes from Mrs. A Schunter of Lumby, BC.
I wonder if she knew Lovella and the Mennonite Girls, or maybe, their moms?? 🙂
I’d like to say thanks to her for this quick, easy and delicious dessert!
Molasses Angel Pudding
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 cup flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- raisins (optional)
Beat egg well, add melted butter, molasses (measured in butter cup) and sugar. Add flour sifted with cinnamon, soda and salt. Beat in boiling water. Batter will be thin. Baked in greased muffin tins at 350 F, 10-15 min. Tops are slightly shiny and sticky when done.
I usually double the recipe and get around 18 muffins.
We always split the muffins and add a good dollop of whipped cream. Mrs. Schunter also suggests serving with a lemon sauce.
Left-overs (if you have any!) are good split and spread with butter.
