Breakfast Recipes

Griddle Cake

1 pint of quite sour, thick milk;

beat into this thoroughly 1 even teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and sugar and 2 cups of flour, to which had been added 1 tablespoon of granulated cornmeal and 1 rounded teaspoon of baking powder before sifting.

Corn Cake

1 cup of white flour.
1/2 cup cornmeal (yellow granulated cornmeal).

RICE WAFFLES

Add 1 tablespoonful of butter and 1 tablespoonful lard to 1 cup of cold, boiled rice;
2 yolks of eggs, the whites beaten separately and added last;
2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoonful salt and 2 teaspoonfuls baking powder, sifted together;
1 teaspoonful of sugar and 1 teaspoonful of molasses, and enough sweet milk to make a thin batter.

Bake in hot waffle irons.

With these serve either maple syrup or a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.

GRIDDLE CAKES

To 1 pint of sour milk add about 3 slices of stale bread and allow the bread to soak in this mixture over night.

In the morning beat up smoothly with 1 egg yolk, 1 teaspoonful of soda, a pinch of salt and enough cornmeal and white flour, in equal quantities, to make a moderately thin batter.

Lastly, add the stiffly-beaten white of egg, bake on a hot griddle.

Cakes should be small in size, as when baked cakes are less readily turned than other batter cakes. These cakes are economical and good.
