      DOMESTIC HINTS

      A Rich Plum Pudding
      Eight or ten eggs well beaten; a pound of bread crumbs; a pinch of salt;
      half a nutmeg grated; and as much ginger, or part cinnamon and mace, finely
      powdered; a pound of beef suet chopped very fine; mix these well together; one
      pound of plums; one pound of currants; two ounces of candied citron peel; or
      part orange and lemon shred and small; two ounces of sweet almonds, blanched and
      cut in bits. Mix well together, then add a wine-glassful of brandy. Let it boil
      four hours or more together; served with wine sauce.

      Pound Seed Cake
      One pound each of butter, loaf sugar, and flour, and nine eggs; work the
      butter to a cream; then the sugar; then the eggs; heat all together twenty
      minutes; then lightly add flour and one ounce of carraway seeds; mix; put in a
      tin lined with butter paper. Bake an hour in a moderate oven.

      A Nice Family Cake
      A pound and a half of flour; one pound of moist sugar; three quarters of a
      pound of butter; one pound of currants; a glass of wine; a glass of milk and
      eight eggs; nutmeg and lemon peel to taste; the butter worked to a cream; then
      add the sugar and spices, and the flour lightly mixed into it, and last of all
      the currants. Bake and hour and a half in a tolerable quick oven.

      Rich Bread and Butter Pudding.
      Cut slices of roll butter, about an eighth of an inch thick; butter a deep
      dish; cover with shred roll buttered; then sprinkle a few currants, a little
      sugar, spice, and candied peel cut fine; then another layer of buttered roll;
      then fruit, add so on till the dish is filled. Make a light rich batter, not
      more than a spoonful of flour to five eggs, and a half a pint of new milk; our
      it over and let it stand an hour or two, that the bread may be thoroughly soaked
      before putting into the oven. It will take an hour to bake.

      Lemon Cheescakes.
      Clarify a quarter of a pound of butter when cold; add the juice and rind of
      a large lemon; sox ounces of pounded loaf sugar; a little brandy; a few grated
      bread crumbs; a quarter of a pound of currants, and three eggs well beaten up;
      put a puff paste in your pastry pans; or you may butter a tart dish and line
      with paste instead of using pastry pans.-- Dublin Commercial Journal
