Buckwheat Cakes


  • 1 cupful of yellow meal
  • 1 quart of boiling milk
  • 1/2 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1/4 compressed yeast-cake
  • buckwheat flour
  • 1 tablespoonful of molasses
  • 1 teaspoonful of soda


Scald the yellow meal in the boiling milk. Add the salt; when cold add the compressed yeast-cake, and enough buckwheat flour to make a soft batter. Beat it well together. Let it rise over night. In the morning stir in the molasses and soda. Although the above method is the old and better way, these cakes can be made in the morning, and baking-powder used instead of yeast; in which case divide the batter, and add the baking-powder, one half at a time.
