Washington Pie

Mix "Washington Cake," or "Jelly Cake Without Eggs," and bake in pie-plates, in a rather hot oven, about fifteen minutes. When done, lay one loaf bottom side up on a warm plate ; spread it with jam, jelly, or any "Filling " that you choose, and lay the other loaf on top, bottom side down. When cold, sift powdered sugar over the top. Serve fresh for dessert.

This is the regulation Sunday dessert in most New England families.

Caramel Loaf

3 eggs, beaten separately. 1 cupful sugar. 1 1/2 cupfuls flour.

1 teaspoonful cream of tartar. 1/2 teaspoonful soda.

Beat the yolks of the eggs with the sugar. To the beaten whites, add one cup of the flour, a little at a time, beating well. Add this to the yolks and beat in the rest of the flour, lightly. Dissolve the cream of tartar and soda in a little hot water and stir in. Bake in a rather quick oven in one round loaf.

When perfectly cold, split the cake, so as to make three layers, and spread thickly with the following mixture, also cold:

1 pint milk. 1 tablespoonful sugar. 1 1/2 tablespoonfuls cornstarch. 1/4 cupful cold milk. Flavoring.

Scald the milk with the sugar; rub the cornstarch in the cold milk, and stir it into that which is boiling.

Let it boil till thick enough not to run. When cool, flavor. After spreading upon the cake pile up the layers, and frost the top with the following mixture, boiled, until it will harden when thrown into cold water:

1/2 cupful grated chocolate. 1 cupful brown sugar.

1 tablespoonful cold water.

Cottage Pudding

1 cupful sugar.

2 tablespoonfuls melted butter. 1 egg, beaten light.

1 cupful milk. 1/2 teaspoonful salt. 1 teaspoonful soda, dissolved. 2 teaspoonfuls cream of tartar. 2 cupfuls flour.

Mix in order, and bake in a moderate oven about half an hour. Serve hot with sauce. Makes one loaf.

Sour milk may be used by omitting the cream of tartar.

Currants may be added. It is still a good pudding if only half a cupful of sugar and one tablespoonful of butter are used.

Cottage Pudding Richer, or Gold Pudding.

1 cupful sugar. 1/2 cupful butter.

3 eggs, yolks only. 1 cupful milk. 1/2 teaspoonful soda.

1 teaspoonful cream of tartar. 2 cupfuls flour. Flavoring.

Cream the butter and sugar; mix in the other ingredients ; beat well and bake in a moderate oven about half an hour.

Serve hot with sauce.

For a family of seven. (This is convenient for a small family, as what is left makes a nice cake, which if frosted will not be recognized as the remains of pudding.)

Prince Of Wales Pudding

6 table spoonfuls flour. 1 teaspoonful soda, dry. 2 teaspoonfuls cream of tartar.
