Beaten Biscuits Food Quotes


"This is the most laborious of cakes, and also the most unwholesome, even when made in the best manner.  We do not recommend it; but there is no accounting for tastes.  Children would not eat these biscuits - nor grown persons either, if they can get any other sort of bread.  When living in a town where there are bakers, there is no excuse for making Maryland biscuit.  Believe nobody that says they are not unwholesome.....Better to live on Indian cakes."

Eliza Leslie, ‘New Cookery Book’ (1857)

 


"In the Virginia of the olden time no breakfast or tea-table was thought to be properly furnished without a plate of these indispensable biscuits.....Let one spend the night at some gentleman-farmer's home, and the first sound heard in the morning, after the crowing of the cock, was the heavy, regular fall of the cook's axe, as she beat and beat her biscuit dough.....Nowadays beaten biscuits are a rarity, found here and there, but soda and modern institutions have caused them to be sadly out of vogue."

‘Virginia Cookery Book’ (1885)
