Blueberry Pudding (Blueberry Cake Recipe) – An incredible Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce Recipe from the Little House on the Prairie books.

Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce

Old Fashioned Cake Recipes

One summer, years ago, 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.

The Little House on the Prairie books are a remarkable and deliciously descriptive historical tale 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.

Little House Books

Blueberry Cake Reminiscing

Not only does this mouthwatering narrative go into great detail describing the preparation of daily meals, but Laura also 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

“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 I 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.)

Blueberry Pudding

Little House Recipes

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 an 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.

This oven-friendly “pudding” is not a custard as we think of pudding in the United States; it’s more of a British-style 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

How To Store Leftovers?

You can store this blueberry cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 6 months.

Can I Use Frozen Blueberries?

I recommend using fresh blueberries for a fresher vibrant flavor, but frozen berries will work. If you use frozen, they need to be thawed out and patted dry with a towel before adding to the batter.

  2. Hello Sommer,
    Since you originally posted this, your girls have become young women! Here in April 2020, I was searching for a recipe using blueberries and rose water, and found this recipe, and YOU! I reveled in your excerpts from the Little House books. I, too, grew up with Laura Ingalls Wilder, and read the books aloud to my children. Now, our daughter has read them to her own kids, and Laura is still mesmerizing! Her exquisite rendering of details opens a window to a life we just haven’t experienced. From our entitled culture of plenty, we might label hers a life of “deprivation”, but instead we read her pages and find… abundance, where little things are BIG, and they are celebrated: each grain of brown sugar brought from town, each intricately-cut paper shelf lining, each hand-made bullet poured by Pa into molds as the girls watched raptly. Writing now from this strange time of  “social-distancing” we’re in, I hope we can hearken back to savoring, slowing, rejoicing over those little things.  At any rate, my family will be enjoying this Old Fashioned Blueberry Pudding with Rosewater Sauce for our Easter brunch.  Thank you so much! Blessings to you and your family!

  3. I keep making this blueberry pudding ever since I discovered this recipe of yours. Always comes out fabulous. This even more remarkable because I never make desserts and am generally very bad at making desserts. Thank you so much for keeping this recipe on here after all these years.

  64. 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.

    As far as what i would like to cook in the Villeroy & Boch Oval bowl. I want to try the 12 bones’ Damn Good Corn Pudding for Thanksgiving. I think it would be the perfect dish to serve it in. Thanks again for the fun post!

    Love how pretty that bowl is too, what would I make in it, bread pudding for my dad, he just loves it!

  149. First of all, I also love little house on the prairie. The books are amazing! I sometime find myself day-dreaming of being Laura Ingells. It’s sad. But I would make delicious butternut squash mac and cheese. Being that it is fall and all. Topped with crunchy bits of buttery bread and cheese. Mmm I am getting hungry

  150. I would love to make a pumpkin cake. Tis the season for everything pumpkin!

  151. That recipe looks insane! I love pudding cake and love your recipe here with the blueberries. The dish is gorgeous, I love the oblong shape of itl

  156. This is a beautiful post. Your children are adorable. And those dishes, oh my. I would definitely bake up some chocolately, grande marnier bread pudding and cover it in salty caramel. I just made myself hungry.

  157. I would make this pudding!! I’ve had a bottle of rosewater sauce in my pantry with no idea what to do with it! AND I had no idea the Little House books were full of foodie references (it’s been so long since I read them). However, the cute blue boxed set is still sitting on my bookshelf, and I’ll be pulling them out for another look!

  158. I Follow Villeroy & Boch on Facebook

  159. I’d bake bread pudding in it!

  160. mac n cheese!

  161. What an amazing pudding! It looks ever so comfortinngga delicious. Lovely dish too (a pitI don’t live in the US).



  162. the addition of rosewater adds something special! I think I’d have to bake a savory leek bread pudding for a sunday brunch in this dish.

  163. The pudding “cake” looks really good. I love that you got the cookbook and have been reading the books to your girls. This summer I got my son the original Hardy Boys to read and he was so excited after he started reading them, but had no clue what they were beforehand. :)

  164. I would bake all sorts of things if I had that lovely dish from V & B — a blueberry dessert for sure, and cornbread dressing at Thanksgiving.

  165. I already subscribe via email as well!

  166. I LOVE this post!! The Little House books are near and dear to my heart. I have this same boxed set from when I was little. I’ve read them with my girls countless times. I love posts like this tying food into literature. :)

    I’d bake a corn souffle in this dish. Mmmm……

  167. 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.

  168. I would make some sort of pumpkin bread. Yummy for the fall season!

  169. I subscribe to ASP emails!

  170. I follow ASP on facebook and twitter.

  171. I follow Villeroy & Boch on Twitter.

  172. I would make this delicious looking recipe, or a cobbler, or maybe even some baked macaroni & cheese! Thanks for the wonderful recipes! (Oh, and the “Little House on the Prairie” books were a favorite of mine as well.) :)

  173. first thing i’d try would be your pudding, of course. followed by a hearty roast of root veggies.

  174. The photos in this post are stunningly gorgeous! I also love, love your thoughts on the Little House books. Such sweet memories of reading them as a girl with my parents. And, my goodness, I would bake your blueberry pudding in that Villeroy & Boch dish … it sounds so intriguing and delicious!

  175. I subscribe ASP on RSS feed reader :)

  176. I think I would make some Peach Kuchen with cinnamon, yogurt and vanilla bean in these beautiful dishes.

  177. It’s gorgeous! I’d definitely make a pudding just like this — ohhh does it look delicious. And I enjoyed Little House on the Prairie when I was little!

  178. Your photos are really gorgeous! I have never had rose water, but you are making me want to try it over this blueberry pudding!

  179. How wierd is this – I was just checking the books out on Amazon as my daughter and I are picking books to read together. I loved Laura Ingalls Wilder as a child. What a great idea to cook something directly from it. Looks delicious as well.

  180. What a bowl of comfort this would be right now – I would make this in this lovely Villeroy and Boch dish.

  185. Very pretty

  186. And yes, I’ve been following you on facebook for a while. Twitter too for that matter.

  187. 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!
