A recipe for making empress pudding. – 1/2 lb. of rice, 2-1/2 pints of milk, the rind of 1/2 a lemon, 3 eggs, some raspberry and currant jam. Gently cook the rice with the lemon peel in the milk, until quite soft; let it cool a little and mix with it the eggs, well beaten. Butter a cake tin, place a layer of rice into it, spread a layer of jam, and repeat until the tin is full, finishing with the rice. Bake the pudding for 3/4 of an hour, turn out, and eat with boiled custard, hot or cold.
