Cup yellow cornmeal 1 quart milk 1/4 cup brown sugar.
1/2 teaspoon salt.
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
Heat the milk to scalding, reserving one cup for moistening the cornmeal. Stir the cornmeal into the hot milk and cook for three hours in a double boiler. Then add the beaten egg, salt, cinnamon, sugar and raisins, and turn into a baking dish. Bake an hour and a half to two hours in a slow oven.
2 cups sifted flour 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt.
1 teaspoon soda 1/2 cup melted butter 1 cup milk 1 cup molasses.
Sift first five ingredients together twice. Stir in the milk, then the molasses and the melted butter. Turn into a buttered pudding dish. If in one large dish, steam 2 hours; if in individual dishes steam 1 hour and 15 minutes, tightly covered. Serve with whipped cream.
1 loaf bread 1/4 cup molasses 1/4 cup Meltose.
1/2 cup milk.
2 tablespoons butter.
1/2 cup raisins.
Crumb the bread including the crusts. Pour over it the melted butter, distributing as evenly as possible, and stir in-also the cleaned raisins. Mix the Meltose and the molasses. An additional 1/4 cup of molasses may be substituted for the Meltose, or strained bee's honey may be used. Add the milk. Turn the liquid over the dry ingredients; mix with a folding motion. Turn into a pudding dish and steam over actively boiling water about 45 minutes. Too long cooking makes it heavy. Serve with Custard Sauce.

Stir the flour into the liquids and lastly add the fruit. Steam three hours. Serve with whipped cream. (If baking powder is used, use 1 1/2 teaspoons and omit the hydrochloric acid.) It will still be necessary to use 1/2 teaspoonful of soda to neutralize the acid of the molasses.
