Mix to a smooth batter, 4 cups of sour buttermilk, 5 cups of flour,
and add 1 tablespoon of melted butter, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon
of molasses. Add the well-beaten yolks of 3 eggs, 1-1/2 teaspoonfuls
of baking soda, dissolved in a little hot water. Lastly, add the
stiffly-beaten whites of 3 eggs. Place about 3 tablespoonfuls of the
batter on hot, well-greased waffle irons. If buttermilk cannot be
procured, sour milk may be used with good results, providing the milk
is quite sour. From this quantity of batter may be made twelve
waffles. Serve with maple syrup or honey.
