"For a spicy variation, add 1/2 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon and ginger. For an apple version, pare and slice two apples and layer with the pudding mixture prior to baking. Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream." — SELF

Yum! I love both the flavor and texture of this dish!!!
This didn't set well. Part of it set and part was watery. I used 2% milk since the recipe didn't specify, so maybe it would work better with whole milk. It would probably also set better in small custard dishes, not a 9x9 pan like the recipe instructs. Also, the cornmeal didn't thicken the mixture; mostly it just sank to the bottom.
I think this is only a partial recipe, which may explain some of the comments about the pudding being watery. My grandmother always made an Indian Pudding for Thanksgiving and used the same ingredients this recipe lists, but before baking the pudding she would add 2 beaten eggs, chopped walnuts and raisins, cinnamon and ginger to the cornmeal mixture. Bake untile set.
I liked the flavor, but the texture was difficult to master. I would bring the 4 cups of milk to a slow boil, add the cornmeal, molasses and salt; then omit the last two cups of cold milk. (I would pour the hot mixture directly into a baking dish). I ended up adding home-made applesauce to the final mixture to get the consistency I wanted.
It was OK.
