Baked Gooseberry Pudding


  • gooseberries
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 ounces of butter

  • sugar to taste


Put the gooseberries into a jar, previously cutting off the tops and tails; place this jar in boiling water, and let it boil until the gooseberries are soft enough to pulp; then beat them through a coarse sieve, and to every pint of pulp add 3 well-whisked eggs, 1 1/2 ounces of butter, 1/2 pint of bread crumbs, and sugar to taste; beat the mixture well, put a border of puff-paste round the edge of a pie-dish, put in the pudding, bake for about 40 minutes, strew sifted sugar over, and serve.

Time: About 40 minutes.

Sufficient for 4 or 5 persons.

Seasonable from May to July.
