Hmmm - I caused confusion yesterday with the "two pennyworth of eggs when they're 2d a quart", so here's a slightly different version of the same puddign from yesterday's post, and also from the same book:
MOTHER EVE'S PUDDING
If you'd have a good pudding, observe what you are taught,
Take two pennyworth of eggs when twelve for the groat (4d) (e.g. 6 eggs!)
And of the same fruit that Eve had once chosen
Well pared and well chopped at least half a dozen.
Six ounces of bread (let your man eat the crust),
The crumbs must be grated as fine as the dust.
Six ounces of raisins from the stones you must sort
Lest they break all your teeth and spoil all your sport
Five ounces of sugar won't make it too sweet,
Some salt and some nutmeg will make it complete
Three hours let it boil without hurry or flutter,
And then serve it up without sugar or butter.
