    Theresa/ Thunderbird's Note:

    This is from one of my most prized cookbooks Compendium Of Cookery and Reliable Recipes.Copywrite 1890.It is so old I'm almost afraid to touch the pages.I wouldn't make this but I thought it would be fun to post it.It dosen't give a baking time so I'll guess at it but keep in mind they cooked on wood stoves then. Them measure in goblets!!
