Bedford Pudding


  • dry crusts of bread
  • 1/2 pint of milk
  • 1 tablespoonful jam
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 ounces sugar


Soak the bread in cold water till quite soft, put it into a cloth and squeeze all the water out of it; turn into a basin and beat it smooth with a spoon. Then beat in the yolks of the eggs, sugar, milk, and a little grated lemon peel. Pour into a pie dish and bake till quite firm, then take from the oven and spread the jam on the top. Whip the whites to a stiff froth and spread over the jam; put back in the oven for a few minutes till brown, then sprinkle with sugar and serve either hot or cold.

Time: 3/4 hour.
