Plain Pudding Sauce No. 1 (Hot)


  • 3/4 cupful of sugar
  • 2 cupfuls of boiling water
  • 1 teaspoonful of butter
  • zest of lemon
  • 1 tablespoonful of cornstarch
  • flavoring to taste of vanilla or any essence, or brandy, rum, or wine


Dilute the corn-starch with a little cold water, and stir it into the boiling water; add the sugar and stir until the starch becomes clear; then add the butter and flavoring. If the sauce becomes too thick, dilute it with a little boiling water; the whipped white of one egg may be added, but is not essential.
