  1. Top and tail the gooseberries, and put them into a jar. Place this jar in boiling water, and let it boil until the gooseberries are soft enough to pulp.

  2. Then beat them through a coarse sieve, and to every pint of pulp add 3 well-whisked eggs, 40g/1½oz butter, 300ml/½ pint breadcrumbs, and sugar to taste.

  3. Beat the mixture well, put a border of puff-pastry round the edge of a pie-dish, put in the pudding, bake for about 40 minutes, sprinkle with sifted sugar and serve.
