Event Details

Ever find an old cookbook at your grandmother’s house? Join Will and Katy as they attempt old recipes from the 1920s and 1930s.

Fried Bread:

Ingredients – 2 eggs, 2 cupfuls sour or buttermilk, Stale bread, 1 teaspoonful soda, 1/2 teaspoonful salt, 1 tablespoonful melted butter

Directions – Beat the eggs until light, add the sour or buttermilk, the melted shortening, soda and salt. Mix thoroughly together. Cut half-inch slices of stale bread into small squares or rounds and dip each slice quickly in boiling water, drain for a moment, and then dip in the sour-milk mixture. Unless the bread is very dry, omit the hot water dip. Fry a few pieces at a time in deep fat heated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The fat will reduce to about 375 degrees Fahrenheit during the frying. Fry about two minutes or until a golden brown on both sides; drain on crumpled paper, and serve with cinnamon and sugar sifted over the slices. Or serve with honey, maple syrup or jam.
