My grandmother made a sweet dessert in a casserole dish that she called Cracker Pudding.
It came from her mother and supposedly is an Amish dish. I know it was made with coarsely broken (Zesta) soda crackers, milk, sugar and I have no idea what else.
If anyone knows another name for this or any type of recipe with these ingredients, I would love to make it for my grandchildren.
Although I only found your web site about 7 months ago, I absolutely love everything about it. There is so much useful information on such a wide range of topics, and it is so easy to get to and from the different pages, I wish all web sites were like yours!
Thanks to everyone involved in making this a great site!
Here is an Amish Cracker Pudding recipe, but not sure if it is the cracker pudding recipe you were looking for.
4 cups milk
2 eggs, separated
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups saltine crackers, broken
1 cup coconut, grated
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat milk in a medium saucepan. Beat egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until frothy and light. Add to hot milk.
Stir in crackers and coconut. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, until thick.
Remove from heat. In a separate bowl beat egg whites until stiff, then fold in vanilla.
Fold egg whites into cracker mixture and pour into a casserole dish. Place in fridge to set.
Enjoy eating your cracker pudding, and I hope it tastes as good as you remember!
