  • 1/4 pound finely chopped suet
  • 1/2 pound flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoonfuls sugar
  • 1/2 pint milk or water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoonfuls baking powder sifted with the flour
  • a little salt
  • 1/2 pound cherries (minus the pits)


Take the suet, flour, eggs, sugar, milk or water, baking powder, and salt; mix together; add the cherries to the batter and fill the mixture into a pudding form which has been well buttered and sprinkled with bread crumbs; boil the pudding 2 hours and serve with the following sauce:


  • 2 tablespoonfuls butter
  • 8 tablespoonfuls of powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoonfuls Cognac, rum or sherry wine
  • 1/2 cup stoned cherries


Stir the butter with the powdered sugar to a cream, add the yolks of the eggs, Cognac, rum or sherry wine and lastly the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth and the cherries.

2 tablespoonfuls of lard, butter or clarified drippings may be substituted for suet, and instead of cherries any other kind of fruit may be used.
