- 1½ cups corn meal 1 egg well beaten
- ½ cup flour, ¾ cup milk
- 4 teaspoons baking powder, ¾ cup water
- ¾ teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon melted shortening
- 1 tablespoon molasses
Mix in order given, beat well, and cook on a hot, greased griddle. If all of the batter is not needed at once, cover what is left, and keep in a cold place; add one-half teaspoon of baking powder, and beat vigorously before using; or half of the recipe may be used and the extra half egg used in some other way.
