In times gone by, people of color sold these delicious cakes in the Vieux Carre of old New Orleans. A Sunday morning church service was followed by a trip there to hear them singing "Belle Cala, Tout Chaud!" and to carry supplies of them home for breakfast to be served with cane syrup or jam. Overnight rising time not included in preparation time. From the Creole chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
