At Christmas my mom would use food coloring to make the whipped cream pink and green and then layer green, pink, and white cream in the dish. I actually prefer the whipped cream without the food coloring but you could make it whatever color you wanted, I suppose, if you wanted to coordinate with a theme.
What's YOUR favorite dessert recipe??
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. water
1 Tbsp. butter
Combine water and sugar and cook together for 3 minutes to make a syrup. Take off heat and add butter and set aside.
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. milk
1 c. dates, chopped
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I usually use walnuts or pecans)
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk and stir until smooth. Fold in nuts and dates. Pour syrup into greased baking dish. Pour batter over the syrup and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Serve topped with whipped cream on in a trifle dish with alternating dollops of pudding and whipped cream.
My mom baked this in a 9x13 dish.
