Hasty pudding is a pudding or porridge of grains cooked in milk or water. In the United States, it often refers specifically to a version made primarily with ground ("Indian") corn, and it is mentioned in the lyrics of "Yankee Doodle", a traditional American song of the eighteenth century. The Indian Pudding was very popular in the colonies in New England and before 1900, it was found in most American Cookbooks.
