|Milk||1 1⁄2 Pint|
|Ground cinnamon/Orange / lemon rind||1 Pinch|
|Sugar||1 1⁄2 Ounce|
Bring the milk slowly to the boil, with the flavouring ingredient (not ground cinnamon); then remove the flavouring.
Add the vermicelli, broken into short pieces, and the salt.
Simmer until tender, then cool slightly.
Separate the eggs.
Add the sugar, yolks and stir well.
Lightly stir in the stiffly-whipped egg whites.
Pour into a well-buttered pie-dish and bake in a moderate oven (350° F., Gas 4) until golden brown—about 20-30 min.
