If you're a pudding fan, then you'll love plum pudding. It's a different flavor that not too many people have heard of (or tried) but it is certainly worth trying! Not to mention, it's a great Thanksgiving treat to share with family and friends.


  • ½ cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 6 eggs, at room temperature

  • ½ cup chopped citron

  • 1 ½ cups pitted prunes, chopped

  • ½ cup dark raisins

  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ cups fine bread crumbs

  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg

  • ½ tsp. ground allspice


  • Whipped cream


Cream the butter and sugar together in an electric mixer. Beat the eggs in, one at a time. Combine the citron, prunes, raisins, and pecans in another bowl. Add the flour to the fruit and nuts and toss together so that everything is coated with flour. Add to the butter and egg mixture along with the remaining ingredients. Blend for 1 minute so that all is incorporated. Grease and flour a soufflé dish, about 7 x 4 inches.

Add the heavy batter and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 to 555 minutes, or until nicely browned. Serve warm by spooning out or cool and cut into pieces. Garnish with the whipped cream.
