An Excellent Plum-Pudding, Made Without Eggs


  • 1/2 pound of flour
  • 6 ounces of raisins
  • 6 ounces of currants
  • 1/4 pound of chopped suet
  • 1/4 pound of brown sugar
  • 1/4 pound of mashed carrot
  • 1/4 pound of mashed potatoes
  • 1 tablespoonful of treacle
  • 1 ounce of candied lemon-peel
  • 1 ounce of candied citron


Mix the flour, currants, suet, and sugar well together; have ready the above proportions of mashed carrot and potato, which stir into the other ingredients; add the treacle and lemon-peel; but put no liquid in the mixture, or it will be spoiled. Tie it loosely in a cloth, or, if put in a basin, do not quite fill it, as the pudding should have room to swell, and boil it for 4 hours. Serve with brandy-sauce. This pudding is better for being mixed over-night.

Time: 4 hours.

Sufficient for 6 or 7 persons.

Seasonable in winter.
