This old cook book did not have a date anywhere. Prince checked the internet for Number 66 and found it was in the forties. On pages four and five  in giant letters across the top is printed "Eat a Better Breakfast....a good start for a Good Day." That is still true because to get your motor running you need fuel. 
Here is a forties recipe.


1/2 cup sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup cornmeal
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 eggs,separated 

Mix and sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Stir in Cornmeal. Add milk and butter to the beaten egg yolks. Add to dry ingredients all at once, mix well. Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake on a hot waffle iron. Serve with butter and syrup. Yield: 3 large waffles.

The kitty justice is I need a waffle iron because we put our frozen waffles in the toaster. I do have one of those old crank sifters, do you?

Yes---you do need a waffle iron!! I used to have one --but don't have it any longer. Don't have a clue what happened to it.. BUT--we don't eat waffles --so I guess I don't need one.

Love seeing the old cookbook though... My Mother probably had one of those... She was such a great cook.

Have a great Sunday.

Guess I better try them but first a waffle iron. Peace

LOL To bad, you did not send me your iron. We eat waffles usually every Saturday. I guess we are in a rut. Glad you enjoyed the cook books. More to come. Peace

Hope you had a wonderful time. Sounds like you have Gypsy blood. You must post some of the 1934 recipes and photos. Glad you enjoyed the photos. Peace
