Mock Poached Eggs
A very good recipe for mock poached eggs is the following: Take as many canned apricots as you require, and if they are not already divided, cut them carefully into halves with a silver knife. Stew gently for ten minutes in syrup, then set aside to get cold. Have ready some blancmange which has been poured into a large flat dish to the thickness of about a quarter of an inch and cut this into small rounds with a sharp cutter. Then stamp out with a large cutter rounds of pastry that has been rolled about a third of an inch thick. On each piece of cake place a round of blanc mange, and exactly in the middle of this the half of an apricot, with the outside uppermost, the hollow form which the stone was taken being neatly filled with whipped cream.
