Buttermilk Yeast Cakes

 Ingredients List

  • 1 Yeast cake
  • 1 pt Warm water
  • 1 tb Cornmeal
  • 1 tb Sugar
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1 pt Buttermilk
  • 1 c Flour
  • 1 c Water


Dissolve 1 yeast cake in 1 pint warm water, add 1 tablespoon each of
cornmeal and sugar and 1 teaspoon salt. Let stand over night.

In the morning boil 1 pint buttermilk; have ready 1 cup flour and water,
mixed to a smooth, stiff batter; pour this into boiling milk and let it
cook thoroughly, stirring constantly. When cool, add to the yeast mixture
and set in a warm place until it ferments. Then work in corn meal enough
to make a stiff dough, mold into cakes and dry in shade.


In using compressed yeast you may use double or even tripple the quantity
of yeast given in your recipe in order to shorten time of fermentation. Be
sure not to let your dough get too light at any stage of the procedure.

(In other words, don't let the dough go for too long a rise. If you use
this procedure and watch your dough texture/height, there is no reason why
this should not work, and want the joy of doing it yourself.)
