RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

Bread Hot Cakes, American

Anybody happen to know at what point "Bread Hot Cakes" became known as "French Toast"?

Ingredients
  • Five slices stale bread
  • 1 ½ tablespoons flour
  • one egg
  • salt
  • ½ teaspoon soda
  • milk to make a batter
Preparation Instructions

Soak bread in water for two minutes and then squeeze through a potato ricer. Add flour, salt and soda, beat in the egg and add sufficient milk to make a batter. Bake on a hot griddle, turning once. Serve with butter and syrup for a nice change in griddle cakes.
