Bread-crumbs, 1 cup, Sugar, 1/2 cup, Chopped sour apples, 2 cups, Chopped raisins, 1 cup, Butter, 2 tablespoons.

Butter well, a deep pudding-dish, and put into it a layer of the apples, and raisins, a sprinkle of sugar, a layer of the bread-crumbs, and a few bits of butter.

Proceed in the same order, until all the materials are used, having the last layer one of bread-crumbs. Cover closely, and bake 45 minutes in a moderate oven, then uncover and brown.

Serve hot or cold, with a hard sauce.
