The Dec. 28, 1920, issue of the Daily News included a brief recipe for Chocolate Crumb Pudding.
The instructions were to mix two cups milk and bread crumbs, add an egg and half cup sugar, then steam for an hour, or bake in slow oven for half an hour. The article also suggested serving it with whipped cream or a “Hard Sauce” made from mixing together a half cup of butter, a cup of sugar and a half cup cream.
There was no mention of chocolate other than the title.
