Griswold Inn Indian Pudding

The Griswold Inn, built in 1776 in Essex, Connecticut, has promised first-class accomodations to travelers since the stagecoach-steamboat days. This traditional molasses-rich dessert isn't as popular as it used to be, but it remains a very tasty treat. Despite the title, early New England settlers did not adapt this recipe from native Americans: 'Indian' refers to the 'Indian meal' used - cornmeal, as wheat flour wasn't available. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
