Yield: 1 Servings
|1.00 pinch||Baking soda|
|Sugar to stiffen|
|1.00 tablespoon||Above batter|
|3.00 tablespoon||Hot milk|
First prepare batter, using mixing bowl. Separate the yolk and white of 1 egg, beating each separately and thoroughly. Then combine both, adding enough superfine powdered sugar to stiffen. Add to this 1 pinch of baking soda and ¼ oz. rum to preserve the batter. Then add a little more sugar to stiffen. To serve, use hot Tom and Jerry mug, using 1 tbl. of above batter, dissolved in 3 tbl. hot milk. Add 1-½ oz. of rum. Then fill mug to within ¼ inch of top of mug and stir gently. Then top with ½ oz. brandy and grate a little nutmeg on top. The secret of a Tom and Jerry is to have a stiff batter and a warm mug.
