Just because, Gentle Reader.
And really, I am so going to try and make this at some point.
- 2-1/2 oz. of macaroni
- 2 pints of milk
- rind of 1/2 lemon
- 3 eggs
- sugar to taste
- grated nutmeg to taste
- 2 tablespoons brandy
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 together well, 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.

The Penny Dreadfuls Review says of Prudence:
“Carriger has done a wonderful job of advancing the world of the Parasol Protectorate and crafting a whole new set of characters. Perhaps not completely new, but she has aged them with the perfection of a fine wine.“
