Any gourmet cooks out there who might be able to figure a recipe for cranberry pudding?

I recently purchased a wonderful cranberry pudding at a craft show. The ingredients include whole cranberries and molasses, uses little or no fat and little sugar.. I would love to be able to figure it out so that I could make one from scratch. Any ideas?


To Jimmy and Jonathan: Thank you both so very much. These recipes both look wonderful and I plan to make each of them today. I really appreciate you helping me.

    2 teaspoons baking soda

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Mix cranberries, raisins, nuts, and dates. Add flour and stir well. Combine molasses, soda, salt, and 1/3 cup boiling water; stir into fruit mixture. Pour into greased 6-cup mold. Cover tightly with foil; tie with string. Place on rack in deep kettle; add boiling water 1 inch deep. Cover; steam 1 1/4 hours, adding water 1 inch deep. Cover; steam 1 1/4 hours, adding water if needed. Cool 10 minutes; unmold. Makes 8 servings.

    Serve with Hard Sauce: Thoroughly cream 1/2 cup butter, softened, 2 cups sifted confectioners' sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat 1 egg yolk and blend into creamed mixture. Beat 1 egg white until stiff peaks form. Fold into butter mixture. Chill. Makes about 1 1/2 cups sauce.

    Note: To reheat pudding, wrap and seal securely in foil. Heat in 300 degrees oven for 30 minutes.
