Excellent Lemon Pudding
Beat the yolks of four eggs; add four ounces of white sugar, the rind of a lemon
being rubbed with some lumps of it to take the essence: then peel, and beat it
in a mortar with the juice of a large lemon, and mix all with four or five
ounces of butter warmed. Put a crust into a shallow dish ; nick the edges, and
put the above into it. When served, turn the pudding out of the dish.
