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 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.
