Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce (GIVEAWAY)

Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce

This post will strike some of you with giddy jubilation and reminiscing… while others will roll their eyes when I confess I’m writing about Little House on the Prairie today. For the latter, DON’T GO! You’ll miss out on an incredible Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce Recipe and a gorgeous Villeroy & Boch GIVEAWAY. I promise it’s worth it to bear my ramblings for a few moments.

This summer I was determined to read my children the entire Little House Series from Laura Ingalls Wilder. I remember being captivated by the books as a child and wanted to see my little ones’ eyes light up with Laura’s antics.

Little House Books

The Little House on the Prairie books are a remarkable, and deliciously descriptive, historical tail of the Ingalls clan, a pioneer family in the 1800’s that moved from Wisconsin, to Oklahoma Indian Territory, back north to Minnesota and finally to South Dakota, all by covered wagon. Although the books are categorized as historical fiction due to Laura’s embellishments, most of the astonishing accounts are true.

In modern day, it’s hard to fully grasp the lifestyle and mindset of an early American pioneer family. To read these books, one would think Laura was completely obsessed with food. Not in the way WE obsess over carbs, gourmet chocolates, or local produce, but engrossed with food for survival. From hunting to foraging, fishing, berrying, farming, cooking, freezing, salt-preserving, drying, and canning… nourishment CONSUMED them. That’s not to say they didn’t enjoy their meals. However, sustenance was extremely valuable. Something held with such importance was worth taking the time to document.

Blueberry Pudding

Not only does this mouthwatering narrative go into great detail describing the preparation of daily meals, Laura weaves a feast for the senses with smells, crackling sounds, and hearty dishes your dying to try.

“Ma made vanity cakes. She made them with beaten eggs and white flour. She dropped them into a kettle of sizzling fat. Each one came up bobbling, and floated till it turned itself over, lifting up its honey-brown puffy bottom. Then it swelled underneath till it was round and Ma lifted it out with a fork… The cakes were not sweet, but they were rich and crisp, and hollow on the inside. Each one was like a great bubble. The crisp bits of it melted on the tongue… They said they had never tasted anything so good and they asked Ma what they were. “Vanity Cakes,” said Ma. “Because they are all puffed up, like vanity, with nothing solid inside.” ~On The Banks Of Plum Creek

How To Make Blueberry Pudding

“Father’s spoon cut deep into the chicken-pie; he scooped out big pieces of thick crust and turned up their fluffy yellow under-sides on the plate. He poured gravy over them; he dipped up big pieces of tender chicken, dark meat and white meat sliding from the bones. He added a mound of baked beans and topped it with a quivering slice of pork fat. At the edge of the plate he piled dark-red beet pickles. And he handed the plate to Almanzo. Silently Almanzo ate it all.” ~ Farmer Boy

See what a mean? I drooled through the entire series. The Little House Books are a MUST-READ for food lovers of all ages. (Put it on your electronic reader, I won’t tell.)

Rosewater Sauce

Needless to say, I HAD to buy The Little House Cookbook. What fun it’s been flipping through the pages of frontier recipes; dishes cooked over open flame and churned to perfection.

This Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce is inspired by the blueberry pudding Almanzo’s mother made after a long day of berrying in the book Farmer Boy. I didn’t use the exact recipe in the cookbook, because it was developed before most homes had reliable ovens. Therefore, it was cooked in a tin can submerged in water on the stovetop.

Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding

This oven-friendly “pudding” is not a custard as we think of pudding; it’s more of a hefty cake that you scoop up with a spoon. It’s dense, hearty and not overly sweet, with a cornbread-like consistency. A pudding of this variety would have been served with milk, or a sweet sauce, poured over the top to moisten it.

Although rosewater is now generally considered a middle-eastern ingredient, it was widely used for flavoring in early American days, because people could make it easily from wild roses.

Admittedly, I’ve tried rosewater in several dishes and beverages and haven’t been impressed, but the combination of rosewater, nutmeg and butter in this silky sauce is exquisite. Poured over the rustic and tart blueberry pudding… sigh. I honestly could not get enough of it!

Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce

Yield: 12 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 40-60 minutes

Ingredients:

For the Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding:
5 Tb. butter, divided
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
5 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
1 2/3 cups milk
2 eggs
2 pints blueberries

For the Rosewater Sauce:
2 cups powdered sugar
1 pinch salt
¼ tsp. nutmeg
4 Tb. rosewater
6 Tb. melted butter
½ tsp. vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degree F. Use 2 Tb. butter to grease a large baking dish. (9X13 or a smaller deeper dish.)

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk the milk, remaining butter (melted) and 2 eggs.

Mix the wet mixture into the dry mixture until well combined. Then stir in the blueberries, withholding a large handful for the top.

Pour the batter into the baking dish and sprinkle the remaining berries over the top. Bake 40-60 minutes (depending on the depth of the dish) until a toothpick comes out clean.

Meanwhile, whisk together the ingredients for the rosewater sauce and set aside.

To serve, scoop the warm pudding onto plates and drizzle with rosewater sauce.

    Oh goodness, that pudding is amazing. I was actually hoping you were giving the cookbook away. :) Now I have to go find it. I love the idea of going back in time and cooking the old way. After all, if our economy continues to collapse, we may need to learn these ways.

    I’ve never been one for rosewater either, but if you recommend it with this dish, I’ll definitely give it a try. Many thanks for sharing!

    Maybe I should re-read the Little House series. Loved them as a girl but wasn’t focused on the food. Wonder if they called it pudding because the British use of the term was still in use in America at that time. As for the V & B bowl and plate, I’m thinking of making a Moroccan tagine–maybe lamb with apricots.

    First off, I read this post and recipe with giddy jubilation! I LOVE little house and really enjoyed the perspective of your writing. Forget about food for survival, whenever I need so much as an advil, ….I think, how did Laura Ingalls do it!!! In 2002, there was a reality show called, “Frontier House”, that challenged a modern day family to live as homestreaders and prepare for winter. It was a fun watch, I had a whole new appreciation for cleaning clothing. Also, thought you might like this link.

    Sommer I simply LOVE this! I too read the Little House books as a child (and probably had them read in school classes aloud by teachers). I was enchanted by them. I did not remember the food aspect and love that you’ve brought that to life. A friend took her daughters to South Dakota (I think ‘South’) to a town where they lived and have a museum and activities there. They had a fabulous time. I love that you are sharing this with your children. What a gift! (BTW, I’m not entering the giveaway just popped by to comment on the beautiful recipe and having read the narrative on your ‘vision’).

I think it was awesome that he was so determined to make sure I read a lot as a child. I know I would come home every so often with those book order things from school and he would never say no. Its great that you are reading with your children and I am sure some day they will look back and love the memory more than you can imagine.
