3. Measure the cinnamon, ginger, and allspice into the mixing bowl. Add the molasses and milk. Stir well.
4. Grease casserole dish with butter or shortening. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the casserole dish.

This recipe doesn’t have much sugar so we served it warm with vanilla ice cream and it was very good. On the second day, we mixed the cold pudding with vanilla yogurt which was also good.
