Gingerbread Pudding is an old favorite recipe in New England (and probably in other areas). The old recipe from Bangor, Maine (1861) calls for 1/2 cup sugar, of molasses and of milk; 3 cups flour; 2 eggs; 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 1 teaspoon soda and ginger to taste. Steam for 3/4 hour.
The Boston Cultivator (newspaper, 1863) requires:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sour milk with 1 cup molasses and 1 teaspoon of soda stirred in
Rub butter into flour combine with liquid. Steam 3 hours. Serve with either warm or cold sauce.
This is an English style pudding and is more like a cake. In fact, I understand that there are modern recipes for cakes called "Gingerbread Pudding Cake".
