Cranberry Orange Pudding

This is a pudding. No, not like an Americanized cold pudding, but like an English pudding, like steamed bread and the like. I’m not qualified to tell you the difference.

I can just tell you what I like.

This is good. Soooo rich and yummy. We had this for our Thanksgiving dinner.

If you don’t like cranberries… well you’re not gonna like this. I’m just sayin’.

You have to beat the egg whites until stiff, adding a little cream of tartar to stabilize the peaks.

Then, you mi the chopped cranberries with the flour, cream of tartar, salt, orange peel and baking powder. This keeps the cranberries from falling to the bottom of the dessert.

Then, you mix together the remaining ingredients and fold in the egg whites.

Pour this into a greased springform pan and bake!

Bake it, then mix up your topping, with loads of cranberries. Let it boil until thickened and yummy and pour over the top of the pudding, then bake another 10 minutes to soak in.

Once it’s done, it’s wet and rich and thick and sticky.

Yep, that’s a lot of cranberries. It’s a lot of flavor and a lot of just goodness.

We love to top this with Cool Whip. Oh, baby!
