A Westminster-Fool


Take a Penny-loaf, cut it into thin Slices, wet them with Sack, lay them in the Bottom of a Dish, take a Quart of Cream, beat up Six Eggs, two Spoonfuls of Rose-water, a Blade of Mace, some grated Nutmeg, sweeten to your Taste. Put this all into a Sauce-pan, and keep stirring all the time over a slow Fire for fear of curdling. When it begins to be thick, pour it into the Dish over the Bread; let it stand till it is cold, and serve it up.
