One Christmas, my husband—a Navy chaplain for 20 years—had to spend the holidays overseas, away from our two children and me.
1/2 cup light molasses
1/2 cup hot water
2 teaspoons baking soda
1-1/2 cups king arthur unbleached all-purpose flour
2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch
dash salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a bowl, combine all pudding ingredients in order given. Pour into a well-greased 4-cup pudding mold. Place in a deep kettle on a rack. Fill kettle with boiling water to 1-in. depth; cover kettle and boil gently. Replace water as needed. Steam about 1 hour or until pudding tests done. Let stand 5 minutes before unmolding.
2. Meanwhile, for sauce, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a saucepan. Add cream and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to boil. Boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Serve pudding and sauce warm. Yield: 6-8 servings.
