TWO WAYS TO MAKE PUDDINGS
By Caroline Coe ,
Fig and Raisin Pudding. Soak 1
cup of dry bread crumbs in 1 cup of
cold milk for one hour. Beat 3 eggs
very light with 3 tablespoons of su
gar. Stir the eggs and sugar into
the soaked crumbs. Sift 3 table
spoons of flour with 1 teaspoon of
baking powder and mix it thoroughly
into 3 tablespoons of powdered suet
Wash 10 figs, wipe them dry and cut
them in very fine pieces. Wash and
dry 1 cup of seeded raisins. Cut each
raisin in 3 strips with a pair of
shears. Dredge the fruit with the
flour and stir into the other mixture.
Pour batter into well-buttered pud
ding mold, and over top place a sheet
of oil paper. Then put on the cover
to the mold and put into steamer or
kettle of, boiling water.
If steamer is used steam four hours;
if boiler, three hours will be plenty.
When slightly cool remove cover and
place in hot oven 15 minutes. Will
keep until Christmas if wrapped in
oil paper and kept in dry place.
