Other Puddings

Puddings which require considerable cooking are usually better if prepared by the fireless method. Rice pudding will require about five hours.

Apple Pie

Line the plate with the crust. On the bottom scatter a quarter of a cup of sugar mixed with a tablespoon of flour, laying apples carefully up to the desired thickness. Sprinkle sugar on the top and put in small pieces of butter. Place in the cooker, using both radiators, for about forty-five minutes.

Any fruit pies can be baked in this manner.

Cherry Pie

Stone ripe cherries; sweeten to taste; and sift a small quantity of flour over the fruit to thicken the juice. Bake in two crusts in the cooker for one hour.

Custard Pie

Make a custard of two eggs, half a cup of sugar, a pint of milk, a little butter and flavoring. Make the paste in the usual way and put it in a round pie dish that will fit in the large compartment. Fill in the usual way and bake in the cooker with two radiators, one above the pie and the other below it.

Lemon Pie

1 cup boiling water

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon cold water

1 cup sugar cup butter 1 egg

Juice and rind of 1 lemon

Put the water into small saucepan and add cornstarch stirred smooth in cold water; when it boils after stirring, set off the stove and add butter and sugar, previously well stirred together. When cool add egg and lemon. Pour into crust in pan and remove to cooker, using both radiators. This will bake in twenty minutes. After baking, cover with meringue and place in the cabinet to brown, again using both radiators.

Pumpkin Pie

2 eggs well beaten 2 cups milk

cup sugar 1 cups cooked pumpkin

Mix the ingredients; salt to taste, season with nutmeg, cinnamon, a little ginger and melted butter. Bake in the cooker one hour.

Frozen Desserts

As the cooker retains cold as well as heat, any frozen dessert which does not require to be stirred - mousse or parfait, for instance - can be made in them. Set one pail inside of the other, filling the outer one with chopped ice and salt and the inner one with the prepared mixture. Let stand for about five hours.
