      Mystery Pudding is a great recipe, I discovered it here with the addition of the pecans after my best friend told me about his mother submitting it to Pilsbury ina contest over 50 years ago when she was the cook at the Rixy school when he was still in grade school. He is 66 now and was pretty sure of the ingredients. When I found this one it brought tears to his eyes to see that the recipe his mother made for school kids and won a prize for from Pilsbury is still out there and being used with the addition of pecans which they could never afford back in those days.<br/>He agrees that the pecans made a wonderful addition to the over all flavor. Our thanks to oilpatchjo for posting it and making an old fellow very happy.
