Nannie’s Woodford Pudding

Author: jodiemo


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup of preserves I used some homemade fig preserves I had but any preserves will do
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. baking soda dissolved in 1/8 cup of sour milk milk with splash of lemon juice
  • 1 t. vanilla
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/2 t. nutmeg
  • For sauce:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 T butter
  • 1 T all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 t. vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl cream together butter and sugar until mixed well.
  • Beat in eggs, milk and preserves until well incorporated.
  • Mix in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla well.
  • Pour into a well greased square baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until edges are brown and middle of cake is set.
  • For the sauce: Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar and butter are dissolved. Continue to cook until sauce is bubbly and has thickened.
  • When you pull the cake out of the oven, cut it into chunks with a spoon then pour sauce over the entire cake.
  • Let it set for about 5 minutes before serving warm and possible with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmmm...enjoy!
