Recipes From The Past: Apple Johnnie Cake

Apple Johnnie Cake

by Mrs. Laura Chamberlain

One pint sour milk, 1 1/2 pint New Orleans molasses, 1 teaspoonful soda, 2 teaspoonsful cream tartar, 1 egg well beaten, 2 tablespoonsful melted lard. Peel, core, and chop fine, 3 large Russet apples, corn meal enough to make a stiff batter. Place a paper in the bottom of a well greased pan, bake 3/4 of an hour in a moderate oven, as it burns easily.

From The Centennial Cookery Book, 1887
