New Dish of Apples


  • 1 pint of apple purée
  • 3 well-beaten eggs
  • a taste of cinnamon if liked
  • 1/4 pound of melted butter
  • 1/4 pound of white powdered sugar
  • fine breadcrumbs
  • fresh butter


Take apple purée and add to it the eggs, cinnamon if liked, melted butter and white powdered sugar. Mix all together and, taking a fireproof dish, put a little water in the bottom of it and then some fine breadcrumbs, sufficient to cover the bottom. Pour in your compôte, then, above that, a layer of fine breadcrumbs, and here and there a lump of fresh butter, which will prevent the breadcrumbs from burning. Cook for half-an-hour.
