  Transparent Pudding.
Put eight eggs, well beaten, into a stew-pan with half
a pound of sugar pounded fine, half a pound of butter, and
some nutmeg grated. Set on the fire and keep con-
stantly stirring till it thickens. Then place it in a basin
to cool ; put a rich puff paste round the edge of the dish,
pour in the pudding, and bake it in a moderate oven. It
will cut light and clear. Candied orange and citron may
be added if you think proper.
