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!!

Well, I might have goofed with the recipe. I tried to cut the recipe in half... and I think I added too much butter. It wasn't quite right at the end. I will try it again - and may add some vanilla to the sauce like one of the reviewers suggested.

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!

Fortunately I had better results than the previous reviewer. I did find it a little too watery but that's easily adjustable. The flavor was great and hubby enjoyed it with frozen whipped cream. (He actually had thirds) This also froze well and hubby has been taking it to work for lunch. I'll make this again but will cut down the water to just three cups.

Wow! this is one of the best desserts I have ever had in my life. This is the first time I've tried baked pudding and it certainly will not be the last. I'll have to make this a monthly dessert.

This was the WORST dessert I have ever had the misfortune of making. Honestly, I can't comprehend how anyone could like this. My mom, who always likes this kind of dessert, told my husband, "It taste worse then it looks." What is so delicious about cinnamon flavored biscuits, swimming in a sickingly sweet syrup??? Blech! Don't waste your time or ingredients!!

This made a huge batch. My kids weren't used to this type of pudding ("What, no box of powder mixed with milk?"), but my oldest was open-minded enough to try it. He and I both loved the brown-sugary flavor. Next time I'll just make half of a batch, though.
