This recipe was shared with me by my Mother-in-Law (Mema), who has been making it for years.  It is always a big hit at Church Dinners and Family Reunions, and any large family gatherings.  I have also recently seen this recipe published in a recipe book by Paula Deen.  The photo above is this pudding  in a Trifle bowl that I made to take to a luncheon at work.
