Grape-Nuts Puff Pudding
Recipe from a Grape-Nuts box from the 1950s
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar (1/2 cup honey may be substituted for sugar)
2 egg yolks, well beaten
3 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. flour
1/4 cup Grape-Nuts
1 cup milk
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
Cream the lemon rind and butter together until well blended. Add sugar gradually and cream together until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks and beat well. Add lemon juice, flour, cereal and milk, mixing well. (Mixture will look curdled, but this will not affect finished product.) Fold in egg whites. Turn into greased baking dish and place in pan of hot water. Bake in slow oven (325°F) 1 hour and 15 minutes. When done, the pudding has a cake-like layer on top with custard below. Serve warm or cold, with plain or whipped cream. Serves 6.
