Make a TITANIC meal

"Waldorf Pudding"

The most interesting food on the First-Class Dinner Menu that was served on the evening of April 14th, 1912 in the First Class Dining Saloon was "Waldorf Pudding", one of the sweet items served with the Tenth Course. (Note: The Waldorf Hotel in New York, which actually didn't open until the 1930s, had never heard of "Waldorf Pudding".!.!.!)

Recipe "Waldorf Pudding"

Ingredients Pudding:

* 1/2 cup sugar
* 2 cups flour
* 2 tsp baking powder
* 3 tbsp melted butter
* 1/2 tsp salt
* 1 1/2 cups diced, unpeeled apples
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup milk
* 1 tsp vanilla
* 1 cup English walnut meats
* 1/2 cup steamed raisins

Ingredients Sauce:

* 1 cup sugar
* 1/2 cup water
* 2 egg yolks, beaten
* 2 cups whipped cream
* 1/2 tsp lemon extract

Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together; add eggs, vanilla extract, milk, butter, nuts and raisins. Mix well and divide into 9 greased individual moulds, cover with greased papers and steam steadily for three quarters of an hour. Turn out and serve.

Boil sugar and water until syrup spins a thread, pour over beaten yolks of eggs, and stir quickly; add lemon extract. Set aside to cool, stirring occasionally. Just before serving, mix in whipped cream.
