Ms. Simon’s Cereal Fruit Pudding

This cereal pudding recipe is not for the faint of heart.  You will need to start with a cup of already cooked cereal.  I picture oatmeal when I read this.  Then you will boil that with water until it is thick.  After that, you will add milk and cook slowly for an hour….tired yet?  Nope?  Okay, then you will put everything into a greased baking dish and bake it for forty minutes.  It seems a little much, but also might be an interesting recipe to try in the slow cooker.  Ms. Simons must have been up at the crack of dawn to make this recipe for breakfast.  One has to wonder that if a recipe takes so long to prepare, it must be delicious, right?  I know I wouldn’t spend two hours on anything that wasn’t extremely good.

Cereal Pudding Recipe

Put a cupful of cooked cereal into two cupfuls of water and boil until thick, then add two cups of milk and cook slowly an hour; add one cup of chopped dates, figs, or raisins, a teaspoon of salt and two teaspoons of butter; put all into a greased baking dish and bake forty minutes in a moderate oven. Serve hot with fruit juice for sauce. It may be garnished with orange marmalade.
