I made this recipe this morning because I had a sweet tooth and needed a little comfort food. It was wonderful. It was so simple to make. ( I made it while studying my sunday school lesson) I added cinammon with the milk and also added more vanilla than the recipe called for, but of course all of this should be done to a person's taste. Thankyou for posting this! I will make it again.

This is just like my mother made when I was young. I increased the sugar to 3/4 cup, added raisins, and nutmeg to taste. My husband thought it was great.

I make this for my elderly mother using lactose free skim milk and it is terrific! I also add a teaspoon of cinnamon with the milk.
