Excellent version of Grape-Nut pudding, a New England favorite. Oddly enough, I've never found anyone who came from somewhere outside of New England who was brought up with this classic. Guess it's an acquired taste. Pity. The flavor is simple and uncomplicated like many recipes of this era, such as bread pudding, rice pudding, etc. It was born of relative poverty, when most households had little extra for desserts. Frugality dictated that women use what they had. I made this to take to my ailing mom, and she loved it. Added just a little cinnamon, plus a dash of lemon extract to offset the sweetness. Some finely grated lemon rind would be a nice addition. Sets up firmly, yet soft. Thumbs up on this one!
