Old fashioned, warmly spiced steamed pudding is sure to become a family holiday tradition.
Grease 1 1/2-quart metal mold or casserole; set aside.

This recipe is the best everyone time I serve it I receive compliments. At our house this is a Christmas tradition and I have used this recipe for over twenty years. My Mother-in-law used a similar recipe. I use a steamed pudding pan and a trivet. I usually spray the pan and then flour the pan before I add my batter. The cake just pops right out of the pan. Everyone also loves the sauce. I usually make a double batch. This is so good!
I have made this the last several years at Thanksgiving for my 96 year old grandmother. It started out as something different for dessert but now everyone loves this it is definately a thanksgiving tradition in my home that everyone looks forward to!
I've made this for Christmas every year since it came as part of the Country Recipes cookbook. It's an excellent lighter alternate to traditional Christmas pudding.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
