Mother liked to try her hand at making deserts from whatever she had on hand. The following recipe comes from my mother’s cookbook. From my family to yours, enjoy!

Ingredients for making the pudding: ¼ cup yellow corn meal, 5 cups whole milk, ¼ cup dark molasses, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 tablespoon butter.

Directions: Mix corn meal with 1 cup of milk. Scald the remaining 4 cups of milk in a double-boiler. Add corn meal, molasses, salt, spices, butter, and mix well. Pour greased pan and bake in oven at 275 degrees for 2 hours. Serve with a custard sauce.
