Alabama Pumpkin Corn
1 1/2 cups corn meal
1/2 cups graham flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
cup soft brown sugar
1 tablespoon hot water
1/4 teaspoon soda
Sift together corn meal, salt, baking powder;
add graham flour unsifted. Add sugar and hot water to pumpkin,
sift in soda and add egg beaten until thick and lemon tinted.
Add pumpkin mixture to dry ingredients and beat until
thoroughly blended, add milk and continue beating. Turn into a
buttered, shallow pan and bake thirty minutes in a hot oven.
This is an old southern recipe and when made by the "old
colored mammy" who originated the bread she "cooked down"
her own pumpkin and used white flour instead of graham
flour. [Source: The Corn Cook

cup of bread crumbs, very dry and fine; two scant cups of
milk; one-half pound of old cheese, grated; three eggs,
whipped very light, and one tablespoonful of butter. Season
with pepper and salt and a pinch of soda dissolved in hot
water and stirred into the milk. Soak the crumbs in the milk,
beat with these the eggs, butter, seasoning, and lastly the
cheese; put into a buttered baking dish, put dry bread crumbs
on top and bake in a rather quick oven until a delicated
brown. Serve immediately.--Mrs. Henderson's Cook Book. From

and one-half lbs. of flour; four oz. of butter; one-half
teacup of sweet milk; one-half cake of yeast; one teaspoonful
of salt; four eggs beaten very light and added last. Set to
rise and bake as other rolls.
One quart of flour; one pint of sweet
milk; one cake of yeast; three eggs; one tablespoonful of
butter and one of sugar; one teaspoonful of salt. The yeast
must be dissolved in a little of the milk. If desired for
breakfast, they must be made the night before; if for tea, set
them to rise about 11 o'clock in the morning. When well risen,
put them in the tin muffin rings that come especially for them
and place in a moderately warm position, letting them stand
about an hour before putting in to bake.
