Original Receipt in 'The Art of Cookery, Made Plain and Easy' by Hannah Glasse, 1747 (Glasse 1747);
To make a carrot pudding.
YOU must take a raw carrot, scrape it very clean and grate it. Take half a pound of the grated carrot, and a pound of grated bread, beat up eight eggs, leave out half the whites, and mix the eggs with half a pint of cream: then stir in the bread and carrot, half a pound of fresh butter melted, half a pint of sack, and three spoonfuls of orange-flower-water, a nutmeg grated. Sweeten to your palate. Mix all well together, and if it is not thin enough, stir in a little new milk or cream. Let it be of a moderate thickness, lay a puff-paste all over the dish, and pour in the ingredients. Bake it; it will take an hour's baking. Or you may boil it, but then you must melt butter and put in white wine and sugar.
A second carrot pudding.
GET two penny loaves, pare off the crust, soak them in a quart of boiling milk, let it stand till it is cold, then grate in two or three large carrots, then put in eight eggs well beat, and three quarters of a pound of fresh butter melted, grate in a little nutmeg, and sweeten to your taste. Cover your dish with puff-paste, pour in the ingredients and bake it an hour.
