8 common crackers.

Butter.

1 quart scalded milk.

3 eggs.

3 egg yolks.

1 cup brown sugar.

1 teaspoon salt.

1 teaspoon cinnamon.

1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg.

1 1/2 cups seeded raisins.

1 cup thin cream.

Split crackers and spread with butter, using two teaspoons to each half cracker. Arrange alternate layers of crackers and raisins (which have been cooked in a very small quantity of boiling water until plump) in a buttered pudding dish. Pour over scalded milk, cover and let stand one hour. Beat egg and egg yolks and add sugar, salt and spices and cream. Pour over first mixture and bake in a slow oven two and one-half hours. Serve with a hard or liquid sauce.
