Here ya' go brother Dicka, this is for you. I can remember mother goose making Grape-nut pudding in my younger days. I think I excused myself from the table if this was the dessert for the day. Didn't think it was very pretty then and 40 years later it still isn't very pretty to me. Guess I am not a custard type of girl. I may of stayed at the dinner table long enough to eat the whipped cream off the top of the pudding!
And even today you will still see this offered on many menu's. I'll have a slice of apple pie please.
I do like the pottery dish that my neighbor Heidi gave to me.
I have a box of Grape-nut cereal in the cupboard and what will I do with it? I could make this again because Mr. Dick enjoyed this old fashion pudding or I could make Grape-nut bread.
A old fashion custard dessert loved by many.
I found this recipe in my cookbook from "The Maine Alzheimer's Association" this recipe for the Grape-nut pudding was given by The Honorable Tom Allen, US Congressman Portland, Maine
