Diet Bread, which keeps moist


  • 3/4 pound of lump sugar, dissolved in the water
  • 1/4 pint of water
  • 1/2 pound of the best flour
  • 7 eggs, taking away the whites of two


Mix the liquid sugar, when it has boiled, with the eggs: beat them up together in a basin with a whisk; then add by degrees the flour, beating all together for about ten minutes; put it into a quick oven. An hour bakes it.

Tin moulds are the best: the dimensions for this quantity are six inches in length and four in depth.
