Escoffier recipes

I am looking for Escoffier's recipes for Saxon Pudding and its variations - I have lost my Guide Culinaire translation and it is very difficult and time-consuming to replace it here. Can somebody help me, please?

  1. I don't have the book but I just Googled "Saxon Pudding" and there are over 10 pages on it there.

    1. re: Candy

      I did the same and found only five recipes in the first ten pages, and none of them the same as Escoffier's. Interesting information about puddings in general though. Thanx.

    2. I was just reading Escoffier and the Saxon Pudding is as follows:
      Work 4 oz. of butter to a cream in a bowl. Add 4 oz. of powdered sugar and 4 oz. of sifted flour and dilute with 2/3 pint of boiled milk.
      Boil this preparation, stirring it the whole time, and dry it over high heat as in the case of a panada for a pate a choux. Take it off of the heat, thicken with 5 egg yolks, and then carefully mix it with 5 whites beaten to a stiff peak. Pour into well buttered moulds, and poach in a bain marie.
      As an accompaniment serve an English custard or Sabyaon, flavored according to taste.
