I ran into this recipe while cleaning--this is an old homestead recipe put out in 1906- written as is...and no, I am not quite as old as this recipe--
Johnny Cake== Put 2 breakfast-cupfuls flour, 1 teacupful sugar, and 2 teaspoonfuls baking-powder in basin.
Mix well, rub a piece of butter size of walnut, add 1 teacupful of any fruit liked, such as sultanas, or currents, or peel or preserved ginger, or grated coconut, 1 egg(well beaten) and a cupful of milk. Pour into greased tin and bake about 1 hour. Oven should be medium hot, test heat with hand first. Keep fire going with green wood.
Have fun- I am going to try this recipe soon with out the wood-LOL--remember a breakfast cup and a teacup are not the same size--a teacup is about 2/3 of a cup and breakfast is about 1 cup
huggles me, Meme :-)
