I participated in a recent swap and my partner, *maryL* sent me 2 wonderful cookbooks. This recipe was in the one entitled "Family Cooking". Using my trusty scale, I converted the ingredients list to US measurement and served this pudding to dinner guests and everyone raved. Warning: It is very sweet!
