Pudding or Cornmeal Pudding
4 cups milk
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup soy grits soaked in 1/2 cup water
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup light molasses
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup fine-chopped dried apples (optional)
In a big pan, bring the milk to a boil, then add the cornmeal and soy grits
gradually stirring rapidly to keep lumps from forming. Lower heat and beat
vigorously until it starts to get thick (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
Add butter, sugar, molasses (can use maple syrup) and spices, let cool somewhat.
Stir in 2 beaten eggs. Pour into buttered baking dish, bake 50-60 minutes
at 325°, until pudding is firm. Serve warm with cream, vanilla ice cream,
or plain yogurt.
