Dr. Zabdiel Boylston, who braved the threat of mob violence in 1721 in order to get Bostonians inoculated against smallpox, favored this excellent pudding.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon each: cloves, cinnamon, allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup warm milk
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda in 1 cup molasses

Instructions:

Stir together the dry ingredients, add the rest of the ingredients, and pour the mixture quickly into a buttered baking dish. Bake in a moderate oven (350 degrees F) about 30 minutes. Turn out on a hot plate. When the pudding is sliced, the honeycomb will show.
