Sticky, gooey, spicy and easy pudding. It’s a must!
Makes 12 servings (you can halve the recipe if you like, but you won’t want to )
2 quarts milk
1 tsp nutmeg (freshly grated)
1 1/2 cups cornmeal
1/3 tsp ginger
2 cups molasses
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups whole eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
Bring 2 quarts of milk to a boil in a heavy pan.
Add the cornmeal to the milk and blend with a wire whisk until it thickens.
Add the molasses, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger and bring to the boil, whisking.
In a separate container, blend the 2 1/2 cups of milk and eggs together and add the hot mixture to it and stir.
Place in a buttered and sugared casserole.
Bake in a 350 F oven for approximately 1 hour.
Test the pudding with a knife for doneness.
