    My grandmother also made this and I am a great granny now. It is delicious except she made a sauce using 2 c. water--2 Tbl.corn starch, 1/2 c. sugar-- and either a couple of Tbl. whiskey or 1 tsp. vanilla. Christal  -  21 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very close to my Grandmother's pudding. The sauce she made for it was 1cup water,1cup sugar,1/2cup butter or margarine. Boil & thicken with either 2 Tablespoons flour or cornstarch. Add 2 Tablespoons vinegar, 1 teaspoon vanilla & nutmeg to taste. Serve sauce just warmed.Sauce also good over warm gengerbread.  -  04 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
