A more healthful -- but delicious -- version of the old favorite. Serve it with low-fat whipped topping and a sprinkling of ground ginger.

    I was thrilled to fine this recipe.I am now 81 years old and remember my grandmother serving us kids a version of this recipe when I was a boy. A bit time consuming but well worth the effort. I would like to hear from you if you agree. E-mail me at Name is Ed Bon Appetit

    This has always been my favorite pudding dish to make in the winter time; I also add gold sultana raisins and dried cranberries though, and serve it hot with french vanilla ice cream! YUM lovely! Growing up north of Boston, this dish brings me home with cherished memories of my childhood.
