I made this two Thanksgivings ago. I have been thinking about it and missing its taste.

I think I will make it this year too!

Here is a tidbit of information. This wasn't a Native American dish adopted by the settlers. It was pure American creation. The reason it is called Indian Pudding is cornmeal was alternately called Indian meal originally.
