Interesting Old Recipe - Rey - 01-28-2011 12:16 PM
Here is an interesting very old recipe. I was looking through some pictures I took last summer and came across this one. It is a photo of the top of a wood burning stove built around the mid 1800’s. The stove was at a museum depicting the household of early European immigrants to the US. The recipe is cast right into the iron, and I think you are supposed to cook the mixture right there under the lid.
So, who can read what it says? Who wants to try to make some?

Wow Rey, that’s cool!
Just a quick dig, but what I found thanks to babylon.com was this-
Mehl- Flour, or meal, like corn meal I assume.
Milch- Literally means milk giving, so milk.
Eier- Couldn't find, but Ei is egg, so maybe a plural? Eggs?
Butter- self explanatory.
Looks like pancakes to me.....?

Well if thats the case, its either pancakes or waffles. That iron is hinged - so I just wonder??

'K, for the record, traveling for your job when you are alone and have nothing to do on a Saturday night, stinks, in case anyone was wondering.
So I have time to work on the recipe puzzle.
I found Pf.
An abbreviation for Pfund.
It means pound.
Still puzzling crm.....
