Recipe: Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

  •  1 pint of Indian meal.
  •  1 cup of flour.
  •  1 tsp. salt.
  •  3 eggs.
  •  4 (l.) tsps. baking powder.
  •  1 pint of milk.

Put the meal into a bowl, and pour over it just enough boiling water to scald it; do not make it soft; let stand until cool. Then add the milk; beat the eggs until very light, add them to the batter, add the flour and salt in which the baking powder has been sifted. Mix well, beat vigorously for a minute or two, and bake on a hot griddle.
