Grandma Elva’s Baked Raisin Pudding

Grandma Elva always had a crew to cook for, and she usually had little or no notice about the number of mouths she would be feeding each day. This never stopped her from whipping up delicious desserts to accompany any meal! Her Baked Raisin Pudding is a well-loved dish filled with raisins, sauce, and a whole lot of memories.

*Can you use powdered milk in this recipe? I sure did. I just mix up a large pitcher of it according to the directions on my package and keep it in the fridge. Then I add cup for cup the milk called in every recipe I cook.
**Want to use bean powder? Use 2 Tablespoons water and 1 1/2 teaspoons Navy Bean Powder. Whisk together and microwave for 2 minutes, whisking at every 30 second interval.
