Step 4

Bake in a pan of water in a 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes depending on your oven; before taking out be sure it is firm in the middle.

Here is one of New England's greatest secrets. We love this old fashioned dessert covered in whipped cream. Some like it heated, but I love it cold. No matter what, try it and see which way is your favorite! Thank you for sharing Courtney! Linda

My dh has been asking me to make him some of this pudding forever, and today is the day he got his wish. Well, I got mine too because I was in pudding land at first bite. This is just so darn good! It hits your soul and makes you smile. You should try it!

Who knew these few ingredients could result in such a fabulous tasting dessert! Comfort in every bite that makes you want to savor the moment. Cold or hot, it's all good. Don't forget the whip cream or Cool Whip. It's a must!

I make this often for my kids because it is fairly healthy and delicious! Whip cream always goes on top!

I heard about this but had never tried it so I decided to give it a go. Well let me tell you, it was inhaled by my dh and then he asked for another bowl. That's how good it is! We had it cold from the fridge with a big glob of whip cream and savored every bite.
