comment What proof is there in pudding?
You might want to double-check your understanding of exceptions testing rules. There's good evidence (see final entry) that the phrase uses "proof" in the usual sense of implication, but is only sensibly applicable to a somewhat narrow range of situations.

comment What is the grammatical function of “a Catholic” in “She was raised a Catholic”?
For sake of completeness, "His mother was raised Catholic" with no article is also common and conveys the same meaning.
