Tipsy Squire
Puddings and Sweet Deserts

Sponge cake soaked in alcohol, in various forms. (Mrs.B, etc). The same name is used in the Southern USA for a sherry trifle.

Original Receipt from 'Modern Cookery for Private Families' by Eliza Acton (Acton 1845);

The old fashioned mode of preparing this dish was to soak a light sponge or Savoy cake in as much good French brandy as it could absorb, then to stick it full of blanched almonds cut into whole length spikes, and to pour a rich cold boiled custard round it. It is more usual now to pour white wine over the cake or a mixture of wine and brandy with this the juice of half a lemon is sometime mixed.
