Make a plain corn-starch blanc-mange, and also a fruit blanc-mange. When cold pour into a mold, wet with cold water a layer of the white.

Separate the whites and yolks of 4 eggs; mix 2 tablespoons powdered sugar, a pinch of salt, and a few drops of strong extract of vanilla with the yolks. Have the whites beaten a long time, even after they seem as light as possible. Heat and butter an earthen dish, and pour in two-thirds of the mixture. Put in a very hot oven, and, after a few minutes, open the oven door, and you will find that it has risen to a high pyramid. Break open the apex with a fork and pour the remainder of the uncooked portion into the opening. Work fast, and close the door as soon as possible. Leave the dish in a few minutes. Let it turn a golden brown, and try with a straw as you would cake. It will boil and bubble at the top, but this will not injure the looks or taste. Eat with sugar and lemon.
