Boiled breadcrumb pudding with eggs, lemon and currants.

Original Receipt from The 'West Gippsland Gazette' (Australia) Tuesday 14 May 1901 (found by Linda Johnson)


Stew some apples with a little water, sugar to taste, and whatever flavoring is liked. In the meantime mix three dessertspoonfuls of arrowroot with some water, and boil it in a pint of milk, sweetened to taste. When sufficiently cool, add to it three eggs well beaten. Put a thick layer of the apples in a well-buttered pie-dish, and pour on to them the arrowroot. Put a little butter on the top, and add a good sprinkling of castor sugar. Bake in a very brisk oven for 20 minutes.
