                My Mom was a super woman. She cooked, baked, canned, did a lot of
     gardening..all this and raised 7 children [4 of these were boys] dating back to 1930 s.
    She did not  have all the conveniences available to her that we have now.
    She baked most of the recipes  from memory, and when she                                                                            .    was asked for one of her recipes, her response was always...    
                 " a little this, and a little that".
     Here is one recipe that she made often, and  always in quantity.

                                BROWN  SUGAR  PUDDING

                 1 cup brown sugar
                 1 1/2 cups water
                 2 Tablespoons butter  ........mix all 3  together and set aside

                 1 1/2 cups flour
                 3/4 cup of sugar
                 2 teaspoons baking powder
                 3/4 cup milk
                 1 cup of raisins

                       Stir together., will resemble a biscuit dough.
                Spray pan [8 x 8] with non stick spray. Put pudding dough in pan. Pour
               sauce [above] over top. Bake at 375* for 30-40 minutes.
               Serve warm with a scoop of  ice cream.

              I have made this several times. I sometimes have used raspberries or blueberries,
            [ substituting white sugar for the brown sugar,] and even on occasion
               used 1 cup chopped  apple, adding 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon to the sauce.

            Very easy, quick recipe, and inexpensive too.Can be doubled.  Enjoy!!

             That is all for today friend,  this is Jennny
