  • Mould or basin holding pint, lined with thin slices of plum-pudding
  • ¾ pint new milk boiled gently 5 minutes with grain of salt


Butter thickly a plain mould or basin, and line it entirely with slices of cold plum or raisin pudding, cut so as to join closely and neatly together; fill it quite with a good custard; lay, first a buttered paper, and then a floured cloth over it, tie them securely, and boil the pudding gently for an hour; let it stand for ten minutes after it is taken up before it is turned out of the mould.
