Wow, Grandma Grippin...thank you!! Even though mine was nothing like a pudding, more like drop biscuits in syrup, it was really delicious. I was a little skeptical about the amount of water called for, so I cut it down to 3 cups. I used 1 cup of brown and 1 cup of white sugar in my syrup mixture. My dough was really thick, so instead of dropping spoonfulls into the syrup, I rolled them into balls and flattened them out a little to resemble biscuts. They cooked up beautifully...and there was plenty of sauce. I would make this again just for the biscuits!! I'll definitley keep this in my recipe box. Thanks again!!


I fixed this for my family of 10. It was a hit with all and everyone wanted seconds. My husband, who was a bit skeptical about the brown sugar, said he really liked it and it was a keeper. We will make this one again and real soon. Thanks for the unique dessert.


Sounds like everyone was expecting something different that what this recipe really is. You have to remember this is from an era where the people lived on hardly anything extravagant... but this was something that they could provide for their family as a treat. My mom loved it as it reminded her of what my grandmother used to make for her as a child. Definitely a recipe that brings back some memories of those who grew up on it. To the author of the recipe! Congratulations are sharing a genuine recipe that brings delightful memories back to those who grew up on this simple economical dessert!
