Gram made this long ago and we always enjoyed it when she served it.Now we continue making it and others always enjoy it too.It's a little different than a regular cake and yet,not a pudding either.It was a name we think she made up,because you do "pour the batter" in the process here.
But so yum is the flavor! Enjoy it!
