My childhood summer vacations were spent on Cape Cod. The history in that part of the country includes the history and customs of Native Americans that are indigenous to that part of Massachusetts. I first had Indian Pudding while vacationing there in the early 1960's. The dessert was not overly sweet and had the wonderful taste of dark molasses. I found this easy version of the traditional recipe many years ago. It always tastes so good during the cold and damp winter months. Topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream ..... it is truly one of my all time favorite desserts.
