Beetroot Pudding

6ozs Wheatmeal Flour Flavouring Essence
1½ ozs Fat ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
4 ozs Beetroot (cooked or raw) 1oz Sugar
3 or 4 tablespoons Milk

Procedure for making:

First mix the flour with the baking powder.
Rub in the fat and add the sugar.
Beetroot can be either cooked or raw, but must be finely grated.
Mix all ingredients to a soft cake consistency and add milk.
Few drops of flavouring helps, but is not necessary.
Turn the mixture into a greased pie dish or square tin.
Place immediately in a moderate oven, bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
NOTE: Sufficient for four persons, this pudding tastes equally good hot or cold.

Remarks: This is a useful recipe for beetroot to make a nice sweet pudding with very little sugar. Wishes for the book’s success. See link.
