Ozark pudding is an easy, delicious recipe.

Ozark Pudding

Ozark pudding is supposed to have been a favorite of President Harry Truman and his wife, Bess, made it for him often.  I don’t know why it is called pudding because it is more like a light, fluffy cake filled with apples and nuts.  I have tweaked the recipe a little and my family loves it with whipped cream or ice cream on top.  If you need a quick dessert that will really go over big with friends and family try this one because it is so good and so easy to make.  If you like cinnamon, apples and nuts, you will love this Ozark pudding cake.  It never lasts long at my house.  You might also like to check out our recipe for cinnamon flop cake.

Ozark pudding will quickly become a favorite once you try the recipe.

4 tablespoons butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped apples (I use 2 medium sized Gala apples)

1 cup chopped walnuts

Cream butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla with a mixer.  In another bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Add to creamed mixture and mix until all ingredients are wet.  Fold in chopped apples with a spoon.  Spray a 9 inch deep dish pie plate with cooking spray.  Pour in batter and sprinkle chopped nuts on top. (You can fold nuts into batter if you want) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes testing center to see if done.  Serve with ice cream or whipped cream on top while warm from the oven.  Makes 6 to 8 servings.  Enjoy!
