  • About


  • 5 wheat rolls
  • ¾ lb. raw suet
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 grated lemon rind
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Salt
  • ½ lb. prunes, stewed


Soak rolls in water, then press the bread quite dry. Knead it with suet, sugar, molasses, cinnamon, and lemon rind, one table-spoonful of water, a pinch of salt. Mix very well together. Line an iron pot with alternate layers of above dough, and stewed and stoned prunes. Bake two hours; baste often with prune juice.
