The name given to the tight trousers worn by some Regency gentlemen, such as the notorious Beau Brummell and his ‘dandy’ followers, as they showed off their leg muscles.
Boil as for rice pudding four ounces of rice with a roll of lemon-peel. Mix this, when drained dry, with the pulp of a dozen boiled, roasted or baked apples, well beaten. Add the beaten yolks of five or six eggs, sugar to taste, and a little cinnamon, with two ounces of candied orange and citron-peel sliced. Line and butter a basin or mould with paste, (not too thick), and pour the pudding into it; then gently stir in the whites of the eggs beaten to a strong froth. Bake the pudding for more than a half-hour, and serve it with a hot sauce made of wine, sugar, the yolk of an egg, and a bit of butter. Margaret Dods
