Corn Gems

(Made of corn flour)


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cupful of corn flour
  • 1/2 cupful of white flour
  • 1 tablespoonful of butter
  • 1 cupful of milk
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 teaspoonful of baking-powder


Break the yolks of the eggs; add to them milk, salt, and melted butter; mix them well together, then add the two kinds of flour. Beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth; when they are ready, add the baking-powder to the flour mixture and then fold in lightly the whipped whites. Turn at once into warm gem-pans, a tablespoonful of batter into each one, and bake in a hot oven for fifteen minutes. This receipt can be used for any kind of flour.
