Hominy Griddle Cakes


  • ½ pint of hominy
  • ¼ lb. flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ pint of sour milk or water
  • 1 teaspoon of soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.


Boil the hominy till very soft, drain and put it in a basin. Crush with a spoon or fork. When cold, work in the flour, to which the salt has been added, the well-beaten eggs, and finally the soda, dissolved in hot water. Beat all till quite light, drop a spoonful at the time on the hot and well-greased griddle, and cook till they begin to puff; then turn and cook the other side.
