Recipe from: "Foods That Made New England Famous" submitted by : Mrs. James B. Sherman, Arlington, MA. She wrote:
"It would be worth getting up in a room so cold water froze in the glass to once again run downstairs to a breakfast of genuine old-fashioned buckwheat griddle cakes, with maple syrup, made from batter that had been rising while we slept. My Aunt, who is entering her 80th year, says she had them for breakfast "on the farm' as far back as she can remember" (written in 1946)
