Historic

Breadcrumbs, suet, sugar, lemon, egg. Boiled (Walsh 1859)



St Agnes of Rome is, among other patrocinies, a patron saint of virgins, girls and chastity. Her feast day is 21 January.


Original Receipt from 'The English Cookery Book' edited by JH Walsh Walsh 1859;

St. Agnes Pudding.
883.Mix together ten ounces of grated bread, half a pound of suet, half a pound of moist sugar, the rind and juice of a large lemon, and one egg. It takes a long time to mix; a little brandy is a great improvement, and a few currants may be added. Boil it nearly an hour.



Magical Dumb Cake also has an association with St Agnes.
