- 1 quart buttermilk
- 2 eggs
- 3 spoonsful butter
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Mix buttermilk, eggs, butter and a teaspoon of saleratus (baking soda); stir
in meal, to the milk, until it is as thick as buckwheat batter.
- Bake in squares about 1-inch thick. It will require half an hour in a hot 425
to 450 degree F oven.
If it is not nice, it will be because you have put in too
much meal and made the batter too thick. But try again, and you will succeed.
