DIRECTIONS

  • Using a heavy saucepan so as not to scorch the milk, bring the milk & salt just to a boil.
  • Gradually stir in the cream of wheat, whisking (Mom used a wooden spoon) until well blended.
  • Return to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered, 2 1/2 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.
  • Meanwhile, beat eggs well with a fork in a glass measuring cup.
  • Add about one tablespoon of thickened hot porridge to the beaten eggs and stir well to combine. Add one more tablespoon of the hot porridge to the egg mixture; stir well.
  • Gradually add the egg mixture into the pot of hot porridge, stirring well to combine.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice.
  • Let cool slightly before serving.
  • Top with butter while warm. Enjoy pudding warm or chilled, sweetened to your taste and with fruit toppings of your choice.
