Delicate Pudding And Baked Custard

With custard sauce, for the pudding.

Almost done moving–it’ll be back to normal-ish next week!

Here’s another take on the pudding recipe from the November 7, 1910 edition of The Fort Wayne (Indiana) Sentinel:

Delicate Pudding

Delicate pudding is made by boiling together for three minutes two-thirds of a cupful of orange juice, one-third of a cupful of lemon juice and one cupful of water. Sweeten to taste, then add a pinch of salt and three tablespoonful of corn starch dissolved in a little cold water. Stir until the mixture is thick and smooth, then boil slowly for ten minutes; add the stiffly whipped whites of three eggs and stir and cook ten minutes longer. Turn into a wetted mold and set aside. Serve very cold with a custard sauce made with the three egg yolks, one pint of milk, three tablespoonfuls of sugar and flavoring.
