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'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.
