One Cup Sour Milk, One Cup Sweet.... A Poetry Recipe

The blizzard outside certainly is giving me time to catch up with some recipe reading! It's wonderful. While reading this old cookbook I found an old "Poetry" recipe to make corn muffins. This is so wonderful because I imagine a lot of little girls from days gone by learned to make muffins by reciting this old recipe to themselves.

Corn Muffins

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 and thereto
Salt and soda, each a spoon
Mix up quickly and bake it soon!Print Friendly and PDF
