Old Fashioned Coffee Pudding

This pudding was handed down from my husband's great-grandmother. To give an idea of how old this recipe is, it was translated from her German script found in an old ledger when she'd collected favorite recipes from her friends. It's a bona fide and delicious "antique". The only modern touch that I've added to it is the option of using decaffeinated coffee.

    Awesome good! I also used this to fill a yellow layer cake without putting in the whipped cream and after the layers, I added some whip cream to make the frosting. Decorated it with almonds dipped half way in chocolate!

    Easy and different - also inexpensive to make.
