Feather Griddle-Cakes (With Yeast)


  • 1 pint of water or milk
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1/2 teacupful of yeast
  • 1 teacupful of thick, sour milk
  • 2 eggs well beaten
  • 1 level tablespoonful of melted butter
  • 1 level teaspoonful of soda
  • flour


Make a batter, at night, of water or milk, salt, and yeast; in the morning, add to it thick, sour milk, eggs, melted butter, soda and flour enough to make the consistency of pancake batter; let stand twenty minutes, then bake.

This is a convenient way, when making sponge for bread over night, using some of the sponge.
