Sugar, 1/2 cup, Salt, 1/2 teaspoon, Vanilla, 1 teaspoon,

Hot milk, 1 quart, Eggs, 3.

Put the sugar in an omelette pan and stir until it melts and is light brown. Add 2 tablespoons of water to the sugar, and then stir this into one pint of the milk. Beat the eggs lightly and add to them the salt and vanilla, and add this to the sugar and milk.

When well mixed then pour into it the rest of the milk. It is important that you do not pour the milk into the sugar, but the sugar into the milk, otherwise the mixture will become lumpy.

When the remainder of the milk has been added to the mixture, pour it into a 2-quart mold, and set the mold in a pan of water and bake until it is a light brown.

Make for it a caramel sauce, composed of half a cup of sugar and half a cup of boiling water, allowed to simmer for 10 minutes.
