Indian Pudding, also referred to as Hasty Pudding, is a traditional New England classic that is popular at the Thanksgiving table. It’s a mouthwatering sweet pudding with a thick consistency that works well with vanilla ice cream. The spices used gives it a kick, but the molasses balances it out with sweetness. Try this for your Thanksgiving spread this year with your slow cooker to bring a change to the traditional pumpkin pie!
