If you are looking for a truly comforting, warming and spicy pudding, this Gooey 1-2-3 Pudding is for you. The Pudding also forms it’s own thick, delicious sauce.

I found the original recipe many years ago when I still had a full-time job. Not much time to cook and even less time to bake, therefore any quick and easy recipes were welcome.

Weekends were mostly all about the kids as they participated in various school sports, which usually meant all of Saturday.

That left me with Sundays to really get the cooking and baking on. But my family has always (and I suppose always will be!) been huge fans of dessert after dinner – as in every day.

The first question I’m usually asked is ” .. What’s for after dinner..” Not dinner, so much, but definitely dessert !

This Gooey 1-2-3 Pudding reminds me of the traditional Fruitcakes baked around Christmas or as many people in South-Africa, a Fruitcake is the dessert or edible gift to give.

The Pudding taste a lot like a Fruitcake minus the abundance of added fruit and nuts.

In this recipe there is only Raisins in the Pudding and no other fruit. Looking at the ingredients, it might not even look all that special.

However, I make this so often, especially during the colder months, and it is also the most popular dessert with my family.

Served with a thin custard or Vanilla ice-cream, and you will have a winner and it is so easy to throw together.
