    LightEra's Note:

    My favorite recipe from my grandmother, who would make this to go over bread pudding and other desserts. So simple to make, but special enough for a holiday table (or over bread pudding to celebrate the birth of a child in our family!). An absolute family tradition; I haven't seen anything else like it. I've come to find that it's a pretty flexible recipe -- you can add more or less cinnamon, sugar, or even other spices (nutmeg, ginger, and cardamom are all good in addition to the cinnamon). I like mine a bit thicker so I use less water than called for here (2 to 2 1/2 cups), but most in my family make it just like this. Quick, easy, and really yummy.
