Cook like boiled custard. When done, put it in the dish in which it is to be served, and beat the white of 1 egg to a stiff froth with 1 tablespoon sugar, and lay over the top smoothly, and brown in the oven. Eat warm or cold, with jelly.
Half box of gelatine, whites of 3 eggs, 2 cups sugar, pint of hot water, juice 1 lemon. Dissolve gelatine in the water; then add lemon-juice and sugar; mix well, and strain through flannel into a large mixing bowl. When cool enough to begin to thicken stir in the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth with egg beater, and beat until it is thick and snow-white all through. It will take a half hour or longer, and the colder the better. Tnrn into molds which have been dipped in cold water, or pile in pyramid form in the center of a glass dish, leaving a space all around. Keep on ice till the next day. Make a soft custard with a pint of milk, yolks of 3 eggs, pinch of salt, 4 tablespoons sugar, little grated lemon rind. The custard should be very cold, and if the pudding is in a pyramid, pour the custard around it (not over it). If in a mold, serve the custard from a pitcher.
Put 1 quart milk over the fire, with a bit of lemon peel or essence of lemon; let it boil; then having made a large cup of flour into a smooth paste with a little cold milk, stir by degrees into the boiling milk; let it boil, stirring all the time until thick; then dip a bowl in cold water, pour the pudding in, and let it cool a little before turning it out. Eat with sweetened cream. The juice of a lemon is an improvement.
