Marlborough Pie / Marlborough Pai

In every issue of BBC History Magazine, picture editor Sam Nott brings you a recipe from the past. In this article, Sam recreates marlborough pie – a tasty pie that travelled to America in the 17th century.

Sam writes: English chef Robert May created this apple custard pie when compiling dishes for his 1660 recipe book The Accomplisht Cook.

As the English established colonies in the New World during the 17th century, settlers took the pie recipe with them. Since the 19th century it has become a favourite dessert in the US during holidays such as Thanksgiving.

A nifty way to make caramel pudding, but it takes two and a half hour. On the other hand there is hardly any work involved at all. Just checking the water level in the saucepan from time to time.

I have to confess that I have never been particularly excited about dessert gellies. Even as  a child, I had to drown them in custard sauce to manage to get them down. But mousse on the other hand, now we’re talking dessert – Ted
