Hasty Pudding


This is a quick, yummy recipe that makes it's own hard sauce. Serve it with real cream. It's an old German recipe my family has made for many holidays.

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 cup boiling water

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup milk

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ¾ cup chopped nuts

  • ½ cup raisins
