            The Christmas pudding is made of five ingredients: cranberries, baking soda, baking powder, molasses and flour. It is steamed in a pudding pan with a clamped on lid for two hours in a water bath. It is beautiful and makes a nice presentation. The brandy sauce is made of butter, sugar and an egg with a touch of brandy.

            It is dense and moist and is not too sweet.

            Here's a photo from a week ago.

              Oops, one more ingred. Hot water. Here's the recipe. All you need to do is get the pan. This is from an old recipe book I have called "Soupçon."

              2 tsp baking soda
              1/2 c hot water
              1/2 c molasses
              2 cups raw cranberries cut in half
              1 1/3 c flour
              2 tsp baking powder

              Dissolve soda in hot water, add molasses and cranberries. Mix flour and baking powder and add to wet mixture. Pour into well buttered pudding mold with top. Cover, clamp down and place onto rack in kettle. Add water to come half way up side of mold. Cover kettle and steam two hours. May be made ahead and reheated. Serve with brandy sauce.
