Proof of the pudding is at least 1605 -- OED lists this quote:
1605 W. Camden Remaines xvii. 319 All the proof of a pudding is in the eating.
They are referring to it's quality (i.e. a well made pudding tastes good), not to a specific property of the pudding itself.

Subject: [Sca-cooks] how old
anyone know how old the saying is, "any port in a storm?" how about "the
proof of the pudding is in the eating."
and to what were they referring about the pudding? I mean, is it some
property of the sausages that are called puddings?
or something about dessert pudding?
