Thomas Jefferson's Simple Bread Pudding

1 cup bread crumbs
2 cups milk, scalded
1/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon butter, melted
2 eggs beaten
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon lemon peel, grated

Add the bread crumbs to the scalded milk in a large wooden mixing bowl. Then stir in the brandy, sugar and melted butter. Set aside and allow to cool. When cold, add the beaten eggs. Lastly, stir in the nutmeg and lemon peel. Pour into custard cups and place in a pan half full of water. Bake in moderate oven (350 degrees) for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out dry. Thomas Jefferson especially enjoyed this pudding with a chocolae sauce. He made it as follows:

3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 square chocolate melted
1/2 cup water

Blend the sugar with the flour. Then add the melted chocolate and the water. Stir while boiling for 5 minutes and serve.
