Colonial Marlborough Pudding

Melanie Campbell


A colonial-era recipe from the first Thanksgivings.

1700s - Apple pudding and Marlborough pudding were very similar to apple pie, as they were also baked in a pastry crust. The only difference seems to be the addition of eggs, as both types were baked in a pastry lined pan covered with pastry (either a solid lid or alattice-type lid).
