Weird Victorian Recipe Moment: Sweet Macaroni Pudding


Just because, Gentle Reader. And really, I am so going to try and make this at some point.
Put the macaroni, with a pint of the milk, into a saucepan with the lemon-peel, and let it simmer gently until the macaroni is tender; then put it into a pie-dish without the peel; mix the other pint of milk with the eggs; stir these well together, adding the sugar and brandy, and pour the mixture over the macaroni. Grate a little nutmeg over the top, and bake in a moderate oven for 1/2 hour. To make this pudding look nice, a paste should be laid round the edges of the dish, and, for variety, a layer of preserve or marmalade may be placed on the macaroni: in this case omit the brandy.

3/4 hour to simmer the macaroni; 1/2 hour to bake the pudding.
Sufficient for 5 or 6 persons. Seasonable at any time.
From Classic Recipes (Beeton, I think.)

And before you ask, yes this works its way into book the fourth. How could I resist such absurdity?

High Aspirations says, "The dialogue is handled masterfully. All of the characters have a unique voice, and their conversations allow their personalities and histories to be revealed without the author boring the reader with character backgrounds that don't relate to the plot."
SPOILER ALERT! Changeless blurb gives away ending of Soulless. Review from twitter follower Love_Glucolin says, "With that, I leave the second book and await for the third, coming later this year. Till then, I shall look out for sudden changes in the air, or more explicitly, a repulsive sensation around me. Who knows, I might be also a curse-breaker."
Out September 1, 2010! Even bigger SPOILER ALERT! Really, DON'T READ THE BLURB ON AMAZON if you haven't read the other books first.
