Boiled Bread Pudding Recipe from 1916.
Soak all scrapes of bread in cold water for two hours, then squeeze as dry as possible. Add four ounces each of flour and chopped suet, two tablespoonfuls of sugar, one teaspoonful of mixed spice, and one of baking-powder. Beat all together, and if too dry, moisten with a little milk. Tie in a floured cloth and steam for two hours.
