Plum Pudding

Really is very good!


  • 12 plums, pitted and halved
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp. tapioca
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 3 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 Tbsp. margarine, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a 2 quart baking dish, stir together plums, 1 cup sugar, water, tapioca, and cinnamon. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. (Or 15 minutes in microwave.)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). In a medium bowl, stir together baking mix, 3 tablespoons sugar, milk, and melted margarine to form a shortcake dough. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto baked plum mixture. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool slightly before serving.

Simple Plum Pudding

Robin, this sounds like a really good recipe but I have to ask: where the heck are the plums? Seems to me if it wants to call itself a "Plum Pudding Recipe", it should at least display a few plums. This is like a pecan pie recipe that doesn't call for pecans, or a strawberry shortcake recipe that doesn't call for strawberries. What's up with that? (12/15/2004)
