Pour 1 quart of boiling milk over 1-1/2 pints of soft bread crumbs.
Put the mixture into a buttered pudding dish with 1 teaspoonful salt.
Cover closely with a plate and let stand about half an hour. At the
end of that time beat into it three eggs, 1 teaspoonful lemon extract,
and beat until perfectly smooth. Bake in a moderately hot oven
three-quarters of an hour. Serve with the following sauce: 6
tablespoonfuls pulverized sugar, 2 tablespoonfuls butter, 1
tablespoonful lemon juice. Beat all together to a cream; when it is
ready to serve. No sugar is needed in this pudding if this sweet sauce
is used.
