    Still in the oven, it's not completely set after 2 hours and 5 minutes.....I'm leaving it in for another 5 mins.....I followed the recipe to the letter!  -  22 Dec 2014


    I love Indian Pudding, and have always had a hard time cooking it. One thing i did learn from a cheif in the family, was when you put it into the oven to bake, put it into a larger pan, or baking dish, filled with water, it helps so the middle isn't runnie.  -  23 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used this recipie in a cultural presentation for my college nursing class. At first I thought no one would touch it, but instead everyone loved it! It has a different texture than expected, and you must like molasses. Also I think its much better served cold than hot....  -  18 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
