Interesting Old Recipe
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?

RE: Interesting Old Recipe
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.
Hefe- yeast.
Looks like pancakes to me.....?

1.5 liters of milk
6-8 eggs
2 Pf of flour
3/4 pf of butter
20 Crm yeast

Wait a minute, whats a Pf???
Or a Crm?

'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.....
