Lay a Lay


The instructions written by Robert May To make a most rare excellent Marrow Pudding in a dish baked… are the following:  Now have a fine deep large dish, then have a slice of French bread, and lay a lay of sliced bread in the dish, and strew it with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg mingled together, and also sprinkle the slices of bread with sack and rose-water…    In the deep redware dish are three slices of bread.  The sprinkling of the bread with sack (very dry sherry) and rose-water infuse the spices and flavor into the bread.
