Buckwheat Cakes

Required: One teacupful of buckwheat meal. One and a quarter cupfuls of milk. One ounce of proteid food. Vegetable butter. Maple syrup. Two eggs.

Make the griddle, or frying-pan, hot. Put in a piece of vegetable or ordinary butter, and, when very hot, add a small cupful of the above ingredients made into a batter. Set this over the fire until one side is done, and then turn. Serve two of these buttercakes together, with a piece of butter between them. Serve with maple syrup. (This syrup is made by boiling half a pint of water to one pound of maple sugar.)

Savoury Macaroni Cheese

Required: One teacupful of macaroni. Two tablespoonfuls of milled cheese. One tablespoonful of butter. One dessertspoonful of flour. One tablespoonful of proteid food. One large cupful of milk.

Boil the macaroni for half an hour in fast boiling water. Strain, and put it in the bottom of a fireproof dish (well buttered). Mill the cheese, and put half of it over the macaroni. In a small saucepan make a thick sauce with some of the liquor in which the macaroni has been boiled, and a little milk. Add some butter, flour, and proteid food. Stir all together until thick.

Then pour the sauce over the macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on the top. Put in the oven to brown, and serve. (Pepper and salt can be added to the sauce, if preferred.)
