Puddings and Sweet Deserts

A type of well pudding, with plums or raisins in it (Wright 1857), made as a plain boiled pudding, then split and filled with butter and sugar.

Original Receipt from Sussex County Magazine 1936, reported by The Wadhurst Historical Society

Black-eyed Susan
Flour, baking-powder, currants, skim milk.
Boil the mixture in a cloth and when cooked cut into three slices lengthwise and spread butter and sugar on the layers - put together and allow the pudding to remain in the oven for a few minutes before serving in order to let the butter and sugar melt. Before bringing the pudding to the table cut into suitable portions crosswise.
