  • About


  • 1 quart of Indian meal
  • 1 heaped tablespoon of lard or butter
  • 1 pint of sour milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.


Pour sufficient boiling water on the meal to scald it thoroughly, without, however, making a batter. Stir well and let it cool. It should then be dry. Add the 3 well-beaten eggs to the meal, the lard or butter, and finally the sour milk, beating all till quite smooth. Add 1 teaspoon of dissolved soda. Pour the mixture into a well-greased baking tin and bake in a quick oven for about 30 minutes, or till a golden brown. This is eaten hot with butter, and cut into slices about 2 inches wide and 3 inches long.
