Indian Pudding

This warm and filling dessert is made of ingredients that would be familiar to any early settler: cornmeal and molasses. It is a wonderful choice for a Sunday supper in the heart of winter.
Makes 8 servings
4 cups milk
1/2 cup cornmeal
2/3 cups molasses
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon each of ground ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon
1.In Advance: Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Butter a soufflé dish or pudding mold. Bring a kettle of water to a boil to make a hot water bath for steaming the pudding.
2.Bring the milk to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the cornmeal gradually, whisking constantly. Simmer over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture has thickened, about 5–10 minutes.
3.Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the molasses. Allow it to cool slightly for about 5 minutes and then stir in the eggs and spices.
4.Pour this batter into a prepared dish and set it in a larger baking dish. Place the assembly on a rack in a preheated oven. Add enough boiling water to come up to the level of the pudding.
5.Bake for about 2 hours or until the pudding is firmly set. Allow the pudding to rest for 30 min. Serve while still warm.
