Our mother's recipes pleased all six of her children. One of my brothers was especially fond of her cherry pudding. Every time he came home, Mom would bake this cake-like treat. Now, I surprise him with it whenever he visits me.


  • 1-2/3 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) pitted tart cherries, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  1. In a small bowl, combine 2/3 cup sugar, flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk. Spread into a greased 11x7-in. baking dish; set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the cherries, butter and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Spoon over crust. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
