I found this in a cook book from 1898 that was my great grandmothers. The cook book does not have normal measurements. It says a knob of butter or a tea cup full of sugar or a handful. I love this recipe. It is so easy and comes out velvety and so good. You can sprinkle nutmeg on the top but it is not necessary.
