3 lbs. brown sugar
2-1/2 qt. sour milk
3/4 lb. melted margarine or oil
8 lbs. whole wheat flour
1-1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring
2 Tbsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. vanilla
Dissolve baking soda in milk before adding to dry ingredients. Add butter and
flavorings. This will be a thick batter. If too thick or too thin add less flour or more
milk. Spread in greased cookie trays and bake at 325 degrees until knife comes out clean.
Break into chunks and you can either rub on a screen to get small chunks or process
for a few seconds in a food processor. You do not want them very small as it will be like
eating bread crumbs! Spread on cookie trays again and toast in slow oven until
browned lightly and very dry.
Yes, that reads right….8 lbs of flour. This can be quite a messy ordeal, if you check out my picture below. My grain mill had not been cleaned for awhile and the pressure blew flour all over, all over me too….but you did not get a picture of that!
Whew, that is better…..mostly cleaned up and ready to bake it.
We ate the cake like that too, you can put maple frosting on it and eat it, but I am planning on grinding it up and drying it for a bunch of cereal! I was so enjoying how raw milk sours, instead of rots. It was like beautiful cultured buttermilk. I love this stuff!
