Everyone seems to have their own version of the popular New England dish. However, this version is unusual because it is made without eggs. Being a Southerner, I had never heard of this dish until I encountered it at a "Yankee" friend's dinner party. Now, it is a staple in my Thanksgiving dinner repertoire!

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix scalded milk and molasses. Mix sugar, corn meal, salt, cinnamon, and ginger, and add to the scalded milk and molasses mixture.
  2. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Pour into a prepared baking dish and dot with butter.
  3. Bake 1 hour in a 300 degrees F oven. Remove from oven, stir in one cup of milk, and bake for 2 hours longer.
  4. Serve warm. (I usually top this with vanilla ice cream.).
