This recipe has been hanging around our family for generations.....my Mother used to bake this for us....and I still make it for my own children and my grandchildren.......I'm sure many of you remember it, or perhaps you don't make it any more, and will be glad to have the recipe again!.........K. :)

Put the casserole dish into a baking pan of water, and bake for about 1 hour or until a knife comes out clean.....let sit out without cover until it cools, then put in refrigerator with cover on till you're ready to serve!........yum!.....K. :)

Grapenuts... wow, I haven't thought about those in years. Remember the Yule Gibbons commercial?

I've seen Grapenut Custard on the menu in a lot of diners and luncheonettes in New England, especially Maine. I've never tried it but I guess I will now. :)

Hi there Josele... It seems like everyone used to quote him saying "many parts are edible". I wish cereal companies would play their old original commercials now and again, as the jingles are such a fun childhood memory :D

I know I miss those days....They play the Popcorn ones...why not the others
