This is a very old recipe. Way back in the old days... many recipes were made in the form of a poem so that it would be easy for the cook to remember.

I thought I would share this with you.

Johnny Cake Poem


"Two cups Indian, one cup wheat
One cup sour milk, one cup sweet,
One cup good eggs that you can eat,
One-half cup Molasses, too,
One-half cup sugar add thereto,
Salt and soda, each a spoon,
Mix up quickly and bake it soon,"

Just mix all ingredients and make into pancakes or biscuit cakes.
