Corn Bread


Recipe for corn bread:

3 pints of sweet milk
2 tea spoons of soda
1 saucer of wheat flour
A little salt
1/2 cup molasses

Stir as thick as Johnny Cakes
Steam 2 1/2 hours (?)
Then put it in the oven 10 minutes and take it out and eat it.


Found in "The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying" by Jeremy Taylor. Published by Little, Brown, 1864.

Is it me, or is there no corn in this corn bread?

It's you. Here in the UK we call wheat corn. As a boy growing up in the 1960s I assumed Kellog's Corn Flakes were made from corn and was amazed to find they were made from maize.
