COCOA MERINGUE PUDDING
Ingredients Meringue Pudding :
1 cup of milk,
2 eggs (yolks),
2 tablespoonfuls of flour,
Pinch of salt,
4 teaspoonfuls of Baker’s Cocoa,
3 tablespoonfuls of sugar,
½ a teaspoonful of vanilla.
Step Meringue Pudding :
Put the milk in the upper part of the double-boiler, and heat. Mix flour and cocoa together and soften in a little cold milk; mix until free from lumps. When the milk is hot, add the flour, and cook, stirring often, eight or ten minutes. Beat yolks of eggs lightly; add sugar and salt, and mix well. When mixture in double-boiler has cooked sufficiently, strain it over the mixture in the bowl. Put back in double-boiler and allow it to cook one or two minutes (stirring constantly), just enough to slightly thicken the eggs. Remove from the stove, and when cool add vanilla and put in the serving-dish. Cover with a meringue. Place dish on a board, put in the oven with the door open, and allow it to remain there for ten or fifteen minutes, and when the meringue will not stick to the fingers, close the door and let it brown slightly. This pudding can be eaten warm or cold, but is much better cold. This will serve four persons generously.
