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.
