Cook half a cup of washed rice in a cup and a half of milk and half a teaspoonful of salt until tender; add an egg beaten light, a
tablespoonful of butter, and one-fourth a cup of orange marmalade (cut the orange peel very fine).
Let cook until the egg is set.
Turn into a bowl, buttered and sprinkled with sugar, and make smooth on the top.
Set the bowl on several folds of paper in a baking dish and surround it with boiling water.
