Bread Griddle Cakes

  • 1 pint sour milk & bread mixture
  • Rice (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • About 3/4 cup flour, sifted
  • Syrup:
  • 3 1/2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 cups cold water
Use equal quantities of sour milk and small, broken pieces of bread. Mix together and let it stand, covered, over 1-2 nights. Bits of rice may be added to this mixture, if your little heart desires.

When ready to use, put through a colander. Mix with the rest of the ingredients.

Bake a small cake first, then any lack in ingredients may be corrected at once. An extra egg yolk or small amount of uncooked egg may be added, if at hand.

Bake on a hot griddle. Serve with syrup.

For the syrup, cook the sugar and water together, stirring until the sugar is melted. Skim well while boiling. Boil for about 30 minutes or until a little of the liquid put on cold saucer will thicken. Syrup may be flavored with maple, using part maple sugar.
