    Indian Pudding

    Indian pudding is hugely popular in New England, and it's time to let everyone else in on the secret. Essentially, it's a custard made by boiling cornmeal, milk, and molasses together. Tara, of A Baking Life and owner of the restaurants 40Paper and 3Crow, has taken this dessert to a whole other level by adding maple syrup and a dash of sea salt for a recipe that works as an after-dinner treat or even for breakfast. Because really, doesn't dessert taste better when it works as a multi-meal?
