Greetings to all from Northern Nevada in beautiful Washoe Valley.
Yesterday my brother and Mother and I took a long drive through Red Rock and down to Susanville, California. It was a gorgeous day, bright and sunny but very cold! On one farm we saw a buffalo that was very light colored, almost white, and it was so beautiful and majestic looking. I was reminded of Miracle, the white buffalo and of the White Calf Buffalo Woman story of the Lakotas. I felt so honored to have seen such a lovely buffalo and hope to go back and take pictures.
We had taken snacks with us for the trip and I had baked some Indian cake the day before to take with us. Following is the recipe:
6 cups water
2 cups precooked yellow corn meal
1 cup sprouted wheat
4 cups precooked blue corn meal
1/2 cups rasins
1/2 cup brown sugar
Boil 6 cups water in large pan then add:
4 cups precooked blue corn meal.
2 cups precooked yellow corn meal.
1/2 cup rasins.
1 cup wheat, sprouted.
1/2 cup brown sugar.
Blend well and make sure all lumps are dissolved. Pour into baking pan that is lined with foil. Cover with foil. Bake at 250 degrees for 4 hours. This cake needs to bake slowly, so do not rush it. Wrap in cotton flour sacking when cool.
