Recipe: Grandma's Berry Pudding

This recipe is a personal family favorite that we make all year round. My grandmother got this recipe from a friend and wrote it down on the back of a bank receipt, of which we still have the original! This dish is less of a "pudding" and more of a cake/baked bread texture. The best part is that it is eggless, so our Indian family can enjoy it! It is a really easy recipe to make and is perfect for beginner bakers. You can use fresh or frozen fruit, and it works well with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, peaches, or apples. Or you can do a combination of fruit as well. It is a very versatile dessert and it can be served hot or cold.

Grandma's Berry Pudding
(serves 6)

- 1 cup flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1/4 cup butter (softened)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2.5 cups fruit (fresh or frozen)


Heat the oven up to 350 degrees celsius and grease the baking pan with butter.

In a mixing bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, and softened butter together.

Then mix in the milk to make a soft dough-like batter.

Place the dough in the centre of the baking pan, and surround it by fruit - like an island.

In a small pan, boil 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar. When it finishes boiling, pour it over the dough in the baking pan.

Immediately put the baking pan in the oven. Bake for 45 minutes.

And voila! 
This dish can be eaten by itself, or topped with whipped cream, or vanilla ice cream (or both!)



  1. Ooh gifs. Tasty :)

  2. u just pour sugar ... in dough ,there is no sugar is it will sweet ?? because when sugar water will pour ,all sugar will collect on surrounded fruits .. dough will come out without sugar .. i am confused .....

    1. It is a sweet and savory flavor. The blueberries are sweet and the cake part is sweet and salty :)

  3. I finally tried this recipe today and it came out great. I used frozen blackberries and an apple and halved the recipe.
