Soak 1/2 loaf of bread in water; then press it dry. Heat 1/2 cup of butter and mix with the bread; add 2 chopped apples, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/2 cup of pounded almonds and the grated peel of a lemon. Add the yolks of 4 EGGS and the whites beaten to a stiff froth; mix well together. Put in a buttered PUDDING-dish and pour over 1/2 cup of melted butter; let bake in a moderate oven until brown. Serve hot.
