We found this to be a quick and delicious recipe. I recently found this recipe in an old Mennonite cookbook. The whole family liked it!

The first time I tried this recipe, I was really disappointed. However, I made some modifications on it, tried it again and am thoroughly enjoying it as I type. I cut the water and brown sugar down to 1/3c and increased the flour a bit to make a thicker batter. Having done that, I really like the recipe!

It isn't worth making. We thought it had a funny texture. Just alot of useless calories for what you get.

This is a fantastic dessert. I have all the ingredients in the pantry at all times. I boil the water and butter together and mix the sauce in the pan. One pan for the dough and clean up is a snap. I add 1 tsp ground cinnamon to either the sauce or the dough (but not both!) Recommend it most highly.

As my mom put it, the pudding tastes like cocoa, not chocolate. Not my recipe, but not bad.

I made this recipe for our 'Oktoberfest' celebration. It was such a hit that now I have 5 copies to send out to our friends/family. Great recipe!!

Used recipe customized for 48 and came out very runny. Have made many times and continues to be a problem. We like this very much and would like to resolve problem. I will try and reduce the water. Maybe Mrs. Dieter can reply with some ideas.
