Heat 4 cups milk in double boiler; add molasses, sugar, cornmeal, spices and butter. Cook 20 minutes, then add fruit.
Add 1 cup more milk, cream or milk; and a little butter. Bake 1 hour longer.
If each day, you add 1 cup or less of cream and butter (add less liquid each day) and rebake a short time, on the 4th day it will be "licken' good". (An old New England recipe.)
