BILLINGSGATE POST: It has been a tradition in the Billingsgate family to celebrate St. Patrick's day by quaffing down a pint or two of Guinness, followed by a special dessert that has been passed down from one generation to the next. We family refer to it as Granny's Irish Pudding. From all accounts, this dessert originated in Ireland, and because of the lack of fruit such as peaches and apples, Granny substituted corn beef and cabbage in the recipe.

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar, divided
1 table spoon baking powder
