    Zurie's Note:

    Very traditional, very comforting! Rather don't use tapioca, which is similar but has much larger "beads" or grains. Tapioca would need soaking overnight.

      I've made this delicious recipe about 4 times now, and have perfected it. It is always a hit with a crowd of pudding lovers. Best served with home-made custard! Yum, gotta have another bowl!

      I have made this recipe often from a similar recipe that my mother-in-law had. This is my family's favourite dessert, and although it is tradionally a winter dessert, they ask for it any time of the year. I make a dairy-free version at the same time in a different mix by following the same recipe but replacing the milk with rice milk. I bake the 2 mixtures at the same time.
