Sally Lunn Pudding
Puddings and Sweet Deserts

Now usually a Bread-and-Butter Pudding made with slices of Sally Lunn cake, but other puddings made from Sally Lunn are known.

Although Sally Lunn Cake is distictly English in name and little known in North America, the earliest receipts for Sally Lunn Pudding seem to be from the USA.

Original Receipt in 'Jennie June's American cookery book', New York, American News Co., 1866


Scoop out a piece from the under side of a Sally Lunn cake without injuring the upper crust, and replace it. Put the cake into a basin that will just hold it, pour boiling milk over it, let it soak for three hours, and turn it out; mix one egg, well beaten, with a glass of white wine and a little spice and sugar, and having removed the piece previously cut out, stir in these ingredients, still taking care not to break the crust, and replace the piece. Butter the basin you boil it in, and if not full, fill it with bread and crumbs, and boil three quarters of an hour.
