On This Day...

It's National Indian Pudding Day here in the US. I have to admit I've never had Indian Pudding before but I believe I'm going to try out this recipe tonight...

1 quart milk
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup cornmeal
3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoons ginger
1 tsp salt
1 cup molasses

Bring milk and butter to a boil. Add cornmeal and stir constantly until smooth, well blended, and slightly thickened. Remove from stove, add eggs, sugar, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and molasses. Mix well together and put into a baking dish about 2" deep. Cover with wax paper. Bake approximately one hour at 400°F in a pan of water or until wax paper can be lifted without pudding sticking to it. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream on top. Cooking time: 45 minutes.
