Recipe: Maize Pudding

(Sufficient to Serve Eight)

  •  3-1/2 c. milk
  •  2 Tb. corn starch
  •  1/2 c. white corn meal
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  1/3 c. sugar
  •  1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  •  3/4 c. raisins or dates

Scald the milk in a double boiler, mix the corn starch, corn meal, salt, sugar, and cinnamon, and add this to the hot milk, stirring rapidly to prevent the formation of lumps. Continue to stir and cook directly over the fire until the mixture thickens. Then return to the double boiler and cook for about 2 hours. Fifteen minutes before removing from the fire, add the raisins or chopped dates, turn into a mold, and serve either hot or cold with CUSTARD Sauce.
