1 cup corn starch wet with 1 cup water.
1 beaten egg; pinch of salt. Stir this into 1 quart of boiling milk. Add 1 teaspoon extract desired for flavoring.
Put the quart of milk on the stove, and when it comes to a boil, pour in the corn-meal wet with 1 cup cold milk. Let boil up well, add the other ingredients, put into a pudding-dish, and bake 2 hours, stirring from the bottom, every 1/2 hour. Be very careful not to scorch the milk if it is put directly over the fire. A double boiler is safer.
