It's the time of year to break out this spicy traditional dessert. Raisins are optional--for some reason, our family never included them.

I enjoyed this a lot. I used skim milk that I made with dry milk, splenda for the sugar, and I did add the raisins (but omitted the cream). I was a tad concerned that it would not thicken because of the skim milk, but it worked just fine. A lovely molasses taste. Only issue I had was that this does not reheat as well as I would have liked. One I'll repeat in the winter, though!
