My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Woodford Pudding

A fabulous dessert for the holidays. This truly is an old Kentucky recipe. I remember my grandmother, mom, and aunts making this. It just wouldn't be Christmas without Woodford Pudding.

Woodford Pudding
12 servings
print recipe

1 cup butter, melted and cooled
6 eggs
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups seedless blackberry jam, homemade if you have it
2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon

2 cups brown sugar
2 cups cream
2 sticks butter
1/4 cup good Kentucky bourbon

Mix butter, eggs, and buttermilk in a large bowl; stir in jam. Combine dry ingredients and add to liquid; mix well until creamy and pour into a large, greased Bundt pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until pudding is set.

Sauce: Combine brown sugar and cream in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Add butter and whisk until blended; add bourbon. Pour over warm cake, setting some extra aside for drizzling when served.
