This recipe originates from Ida Geller Weiner (1912–2008), of New Haven CT, who made it Thanksgiving and other family gatherings.

Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Preheat oven to 325 °F (150 °C).
  2. Cook carrots until soft, then drain and mash them. Set aside.
  3. Sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  4. Cream together shortening and egg yolks.
  5. Beat in brown sugar, cold water, lemon juice, and vanilla until well-mixed. Stir in mashed carrots, then dry ingredients.
  6. Whip the egg whites until stiff, then fold into carrot batter.
  7. Transfer batter to a well-greased ring mold (with a bottom).
  8. Place a large shallow pan with about an inch of water in the preheated oven, and place the pudding in the pan.
  9. Bake for 1 hour. Unmold onto a serving plate while still somewhat warm.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • If needed, you can substitute baby carrots for the regular carrots.
  • If desired, you can add other chopped vegetable (peas, chopped string beans, etc).
  • If you can't make a water bath, just bake without it.
