Here is another old recipe.  I have not tried it yet, but it sounds interesting!  As usual, the measurements are a little unclear.


Three quarts of milk, six heaping iron spoonfuls of cornmeal, three eggs, one coffee cup of molasses, one cup sugar, butter size of an eggs, one teaspoonful each of nutmeg, ginger, cloves and cinnamon, salt, and one coffee cup seeded raisins.  Boil half the milk, wet the meal to thin batter with the balance of the mil, and stir into the boiling milk; when cool, add the other ingredients and bake slowly three or more hours.
