National Indian Pudding Day

American Indian pudding is a delicious custard made from molasses, cornmeal, milk, butter, spices, eggs, and sometimes apples. Once baked, Indian pudding looks like an inedible mush of all the ingredients, but after one bite you will definitely be craving more!

This scrumptious recipe has been around for centuries, first created by the colonists. When they arrived in the New World, they dreamed of the plum puddings of England but did not have the correct ingredients to make it. Using what they had available to them, they substituted Indian cornmeal for wheat flour, thus creating the first Indian pudding. 

Indian pudding is still a popular dessert around New England and other parts of the country. Celebrate your American heritage today and enjoy some Indian pudding on National Indian Pudding Day!
