 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      Pt            Sweet Milk
    1      C             Cornmeal -- sifted
    1 1/2  Tbsp          Sugar
      1/2  Tsp           Salt
    1      Tbsp          Butter (Do Not Substitute Margarine) -- heaping
 tbs.
    3                    Eggs -- separated
 
 Scald the milk and slowly add the cornmeal, sugar and salt.  Cook untill
 it “puffs,” stirring constantly.  Set off the stove and add the butter.
 Allow to cool for 3 minutes. Stir in well-beaten egg yolks.  Fold in the
 stiffly beaten egg whites.  Bake in a dish heavily greased with cooking
 oil until it brown and cracks near the edges, about 50 minutes at 350°
 .  The bread will “fall” when removed from the oven, so eat immediately
 with plenty of butter.
 
 Serves 4
