This is from Taste of Home and is 7 ingredients and all mixed into one:

Our mother's recipes pleased all six of her children. One of my brothers was especially fond of her cherry pudding. Every time he came home, Mom would bake this cake-like treat. Now, I surprise him with it whenever he visits me.

Here are a couple of links that I found that appear to be pretty old. I'm hoping that one of these will be close to your family recipe. Do let us know when you figure it out, sounds delicious!


This recipe is old fashioned. The blogger suggests it is 100 years old but it's written in too modern a style to be really that old:

  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups pitted sour cherries*
  • 1/2 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put into a mixing bowl: butter, sugar, baking powder, salt, egg, milk, flour, and vanilla; beat until smooth. Pour into a 7 1/2 X 12 X 2 inch rectangular casserole dish, or similarly sized dish.

Make sauce by heating the 3/4 cup of sugar, cherries (including any juice), and water. Bring to a boil; then pour the cherry sauce over the batter. Place in oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until pudding just begins to shrink from sides of dish, and the top is golden brown.


When baked, cherries and sauce will be on the bottom. Serve warm. If desired, may be served with milk.

*Frozen or canned cherries may be used. Do not drain frozen or canned cherries; and include juice when measuring cherries. It works okay to use a 1 pound can of cherriesthere just will be somewhat fewer cherries in the dish than if fresh or frozen cherries were used. Reduce amount of sugar, if using cherries canned or frozen in sugar syrup.

This one is taken right off an old recipe card, probably from the 40s or 50s:


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 cups cherries


  • 1 cup sugar


  • Sift flour and baking powder
  • Cream sugar and shortening
  • Mix two mixtures together
  • Add milk and stir well
  • Add cherries to baking pan and cover with mixture
  • Sprinkle with 1 cup sugar
  • Pour over 1 pint liquid

  • Bake for 45 minutes

Oh, I did not notice that this recipe has already been found.
Then try another recipe.

Ingredients: 5 tablespoons milk, 1 vanilla sugar, 120 g flour, 120 g sugar, 4 eggs, 200 ml liquid cream, 500 g cherries.

Preheat oven to 210 degrees (TH7).
Grease a flat baking dish with butter and add pitted cherries.

Mix the eggs with the sugar, then add the flour and stir well.
Then add the vanilla sugar, liquid cream and milk.
Pour over the cherries and put in the oven for 30 minutes.

It seems to me that this recipe is super quickly and easy.
