Bread And Butter Pudding

Four ounces of stale bread, weighed after it is cut in thin slices and the crust taken off, four ounces of fresh butter soft enough to spread, raspberry marmalade enough to spread half of the bread, one pint of rich sweet milk, four ounces of white granulated sugar, two teaspoonfuls of corn starch, six fresh eggs beaten separately, one tea-spoonful of grated nutmeg, four tablespoonfuls of brandy. Butter all of the bread, then spread half of the slices with raspberry marmalade and lay the other half on top like sandwiches, then cut them with a sharp knife in pieces an inch square. Put the milk, sugar and butter that is left from the bread over the fire and when it is hot mix the corn starch with a little cold milk and stir it in, stir it until it boils two minutes, then take it off the fire. Beat the yolks and stir them in, set it over the fire again- until the eggs thicken, but must not boil, then pour it into the pudding pan and stir in the nutmeg and brandy, beat the whites with one tablespoonful of white sugar to a stiff foam and stir them in, then put in the bread, carefully covering every piece with the custard, set it in a pan of boiling water in the oven and bake twenty minutes.
