This is a traditional style pudding. It was passed down through the family on my father's side. It is a Christmas tradition we love! It is best to bake this at least a day before serving. The taste and texture becomes even richer the longer you wait. It actually requires no refrigeration, just keep the lid on it. Be prepared to have your blood sugar soar!
