Totally delicious dessert that we loved very much! The grapenuts softened during baking and made a soft crust on the bottom with the custard on top. I topped ours with whipped cream and we pigged out. So very delicious. I couldn't get enough!

I had never had this before, but after having it, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be having it again. As a matter of fact I am making it again today at the request of my daughter who fell in love with it too. Great dessert and so delicious you will want to eat the whole thing! I topped ours with lots of whip cream. Yummmmmm!

This looked interesting and I had some leftover grapenuts so whipped up this pudding. OMG is it ever good. Whipped cream is just what it needs to give it a little added sweetness. Comfort and sweet is where it's at with this new favorite of mine!

This reminds me of years ago when my aunt and grandmother would get in the kitchen and make some of this for us. It is a great childhood memory that I couldn't wait to bring to life once again when I saw it here. This came out every bit as good as theirs, and we loved it to pieces! What a satisfying dessert it makes, and it's not heavy on your tummy either after eating a big meal, which makes it a great dessert anytime. This just may have to be made weekly for me!
