The ‘pudding’ is really a cake, but this is what my grandmother always called it. It is topped with a butter-sugar sauce when served. I have never had anything as delicious in my life. It is not low- cal, but one of those rare indulgences worth the calories.
Delicious Blueberry Pudding with Butter-Sugar Sauce
- 3 tablespoons shortening
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- ¾ cup milk
- 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 ½ cups blueberries
- ½ cup pasteurized egg
- ⅔ cup butter, softened
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until smooth; mix in egg. Stir in the milk. Sift in the flour and baking powder, and mix well. Fold in the blueberries. Spread evenly in the prepared pan.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
In a medium bowl, beat the confectioners’ sugar and butter together until smooth. Beat in the egg gradually, then stir in vanilla. Chill until serving. Serve chilled sauce over warm pudding.
