I had a bag of cornflour that I had purchased to use in a chili recipe and I have been looking for other recipes to use it in when I came across this. Good, hot and filling. All the earmarks of a comfort food. Definetely a "grandma" type recipe. And a keeper for my recipe box. Thanks for sharing. If you have any more of your grandma's recipes, please share them. This is so good.
