This was my one of my dad's favorite recipes growing up. My grandmother wrote it out for me hoping I will pass on the tradition. She made a note that white sugar can be substituted for the brown. Also, she says it's also good cold. I have not yet made this but plan to soon. Sounds like it might be a little more cake with sauce than an actual pudding.
