Recipe by Diana 2

Taken from "The Anne of Green Gables Cookbook", written by Lucy Maud Montgomery's granddaughter Kate Macdonald. I am posting this as it appears in the original book, which was written as a tribute to her father Stuart Macdonald (Montgomery's son). The recipes were written with precise instructions, geared for young cooks. All recipes were apparently tested by a 12 year old cook, with perfect results. Quote from the book: "Diana, fancy if you can my extreme horror at finding a mouse drowned in that pudding sauce!" (from Anne of Green Gables XVI) "If you have any pudding sauce left over, don't forget - like Anne did - to cover it tightly. Other recipes are available in a cookbook prepared by chef #756627 - book #243014 *NOTE*: Posting to add to the cookbook. I have not personally made this recipe.
