My Grandpa & Grandma Sorensen lived next to us growing up and we saw them everyday. They were a big part of my life. I miss them. Anyway, I’ve been thinking a lot about them lately and one of my greatest memories was Sunday dinners. We always had Sunday Dinner at their house and my Grandma was a good cook. One of the things that I loved best was when she would make Steamed Pudding. I don’t have her recipe and I’ve really been wanting to try it again. Many people that I mentioned this to had never even heard of steamed pudding. It is like a very moist cake that has a pudding like sauce at the bottom. So I started looking on the internet and I came across a Chocolate Pudding Cake that sounded just about like the one my Grandma made. Now I was young the last time I had this from my Grandma (and I seem to remember her using a special bundt pan for hers), but it tasted heavenly and I’m pretty sure it was close to my Grandma’s recipe.I combined and adjusted a few recipes to come up with this one. It definitely looks like a mess, especially after you pour the boiling water over the top. But it totally cooks to perfection – I promise and its so easy! It’s definitely very rich, but with ice cream and whipped cream – its just divine. And I love that since it is so rich, a little goes a long way! I made this on a Sunday and we had it for dessert for several days. We liked it best warm, but it could be served cold or at room temperature if you prefer.
On Recipe Thursdays, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you! I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!
