"This is a wonderful treat that we would make the daycare kids on cold mornings! 'Grandma' (an older woman who cooked for us) showed me how to make it. So easy and so yummy!"

This was GREAT!! I was making biscuits and gravy for the kids and realized I didn't have any sausage. Unsure of what to do then, I came across this recipe. I have never had a "sweet" gravy before but figured, what the heck. OMG!!! I added some cinnamon to the mix and I swear it tasted like we were eating cinnamon rolls!! I was dying to find out what else I could dunk in this "gravy"...I have to say that this made WAY too much for 3 of us to eat, you know since I didn't pay attention to the serving size. It is SOOO sweet that you can't eat too much of it at once though. But I will make this again for sure...just half sized!! THANKS!
This is alright - nothing to jump up and down about. It desperately needs cinnamon (I also added nutmeg). If you're aiming to top your pancakes as I was this morning (To my dismay, found I was out of corn syrup -AND- evaporated milk!), keep looking...
My mom used to make this when I was a kid. I've been looking for this recipe for a while now. It was just as good I I remembered it. Thanks for sharing it's GREAT!!!!
This is an awesome sweet gravy recipe...I added 1/4 Cup og semi sweet chocolate chips and made a very delicious chocolate gravy!! My kids loved it....not too sweet!!
Oh, busymom, how happy I am that I found this! My mom used to make this on cold mornings for us 7 kids in the 60s. I have asked cooks for years if they've ever had it and no one had. I sent this recipe to all of my sibs!
This is great as a topping for bread pudding.
I am surprised that no one has mentioned that this is a basic custard sauce recipe! Someone's grandma probably called it "gravy" to get the kids to eat it! :-)
i have been looking for the recipe for the longest time....my my grandma used to make this for us every time we spent the night....I love it lol
