Butter a pudding mold (or coffee can or bowl)
- 6 oz. butter
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp. ground ginger
- 1/4 cup diced candied ginger

Sprinkle the pecans on the bottom of the pudding mold. Place the pudding mixture on top of the pecans in the mold and cover.
Put in a large pan of simmering water (so it comes up about halfway of the mold)
Simmer (do not boil hard) for 2 hours.
Remove and let sit about 5 minutes.
Remove to a serving platter – decorate with candied cherries if you wish.
- 2 oz. butter
- 5 oz. demerara sugar
- 1 tbsp light corn syrup
- 5 oz (small can) evaporated milk
Melt the butter, then add the sugar and corn syrup. Cook about 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly
