A quarter of a pound of boiled sweet potato. Three eggs.

A quarter pound of powdered white sugar A quarter of a pound of fresh butter. A glass of mixed wine and brandy. A half-glass of rose-water. A tea-spoonful of mixed spice, nutmeg, mace and cinnamon.

Pound the spice, allowing a smaller proportion of mace than of nutmeg and cinnamon.

Boil and peal some sweet potatoes, and when they are cold, weigh a quarter of a pound. Mash the sweet potato very smooth, and rub it through a sieve. Stir the sugar and butter to a cream.

Beat the eggs very light, and stir them into the butter and sugar, alternately with the sweet potato. Add by degrees the liquor, rose-water and spice. Stir all very hard together.

Spread puff-paste on a soup-plate. Put in the mixture, and bake it about half an hour in a moderate oven.

Grate sugar over it.
