Recipe Comments & Reviews

Tasted just as I hoped it would with a wonderful consistency, pudding and meringue. Guests ate up every bit!
Not sure how it tastes with a meringue, but it was good. I don't recommend baking for 90 minutes or it will become gritty. It makes for a nice cozy dessert on a cold evening.
I have been making this recipe steady..we all love it so
much..the only thing I do different is I put the whole eggs
into the mixture I don't make the merange...we love it
here so much as does all of my company. I enjoy all of
Land O' lake recipes..I bougt one of your cook books at a
yard sale..and loved every bit of that book..then I found
you on here and was so happy. Looking for more of your
books. thanks Deborah..Poetess
I added about 20 raisins to this pudding,everyone in the house ate it and enjoyed it.I topped it off with ice-cream while still hot and some with whip cream to compare it and both ways where delicious.
