Indian pudding is an old-fashioned American dessert made with cornmeal, milk and molasses. The addition of pumpkin to this recipe from The New York Times makes a pudding that tastes like pumpkin pie without the crust. I really like this. I'm not a big fan of raisins especially in a pudding, but they add something to the dish. It can be eaten warm or cold and for any meal. I cooked mine in two dishes, but it still took the entire cook time.
