Family Recipe Friday - Cherry Pudding

If you love super-sweet desserts, this is a good one.  It's a bit of a cross between a pudding and a cobbler.  If you add that second 1/2 cup of of sugar on top, you could well go into sugar shock. 
Cherry Pudding
(Easie Berry - Her Favorite)

1 stick of butter (8 tablespoons)
1 cup of all-purpose flour
2 cups of sugar, divided*
3 tablespoons baking powder
¾ cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 15 oz. can cherry pie filling
1 15 oz. can cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a 9x13 pan, melt butter in oven. 

In a large bowl, mix flour, 1 ½ cups sugar, baking powder and milk.  Spread this batter in pan with melted butter.  In a separate bowl, combine the canned pie filling and cherries.  Spoon over batter.  Dribble the vanilla on top.  Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup sugar on top of this.* 

Bake for approximately 40 minutes – 1 hour.  Makes 10 servings.

*That extra ½ cup of sugar makes this pudding super sweet.  You can omit it if you prefer.
