Buckwheat Cakes


  • 1/2 pint of buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 pint of corn meal
  • 1/4 pint of wheat flour
  • a little salt
  • 2 eggs beaten very light
  • 1 quart of new milk (made a little warm and mixed with the eggs before the flour is put in)
  • 1 tablespoonful of butter or sweet lard
  • 2 large tablespoonfuls of yeast


Set it to rise at night for the morning. If in the least sour, stir in before baking just enough soda to correct the acidity. A very nice, but more expensive, recipe.
