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.

BUTTERMILK WAFFLES

Mix to a smooth batter, 4 cups of sour buttermilk, 5 cups of flour, and add 1 tablespoon of melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon of molasses.

Add the well-beaten yolks of 3 eggs, 1-1/2 teaspoonfuls of baking soda, dissolved in a little hot water.

Lastly, add the stiffly-beaten whites of 3 eggs.

Place about 3 tablespoonfuls of the batter on hot, well-greased waffle irons.

If buttermilk cannot be procured, sour milk may be used with good results, providing the milk is quite sour.

From this quantity of batter may be made twelve waffles. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
