My father in law cooked this for his family . The kids used to ask for "coffee stuff" and off he would go to the kitchen . My husband started making this for our children and for me every mother's day for breakfast. It's yum, not too sweet ... like a very thick, creamy cup of coffee! I love when a tradition gets handed down.
