Military Puddings


  • 1/2 pound of suet
  • 1/2 pound of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 pound of moist sugar
  • rind and juice of 1 large lemon


Chop the suet finely, mix it with the bread crumbs and sugar, and mince the lemon-rind and strain the juice; stir these into the other ingredients, mix well, and put the mixture into small buttered cups, and bake for rather more than 1/2 hour; turn them out on the dish, and serve with lemon-sauce. The above ingredients may be made into small balls, and boiled for about 1/2 hour; they should then be served with the same sauce as when baked.

Time: Rather more than 1/2 hour.

Sufficient to fill 6 or 7 moderate-sized cups.

Seasonable at any time.
